Dermoscopy is a noninvasive skin imaging technique that uses optical magnification and either liquid immersion or cross-polarized lighting to make subsurface structures more easily visible when compared to conventional clinical images. It allows for the identification of dozens of morphological features that are particularly important in identifying malignant melanoma.
Dermoscopy Image Analysis summarizes the state of the art of the computerized analysis of dermoscopy images. The book begins by discussing the influence of color normalization on classification accuracy and then:
Dermoscopy Image Analysis not only showcases recent advances but also explores future directions for this exciting subfield of medical image analysis, covering dermoscopy image analysis from preprocessing to classification.
“… collect[s] high-quality research articles on dermoscopy image analysis. … presents the latest state-of-the-art techniques for classifying benign and malignant skin lesions. A very interesting point that emerged from the literature review, as one author points out, is that all these computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems offer invaluable help to the general practitioner (GP) in an initial diagnosis of the lesions. The high level of performance of these systems can thus provide an accurate evaluation of skin lesions without having to refer to a dermatologist at this initial stage.”
“… demonstrates the significant advancements in dermoscopy image analysis techniques, involving image-preprocessing, lesion segmentation (or border detection), feature extraction, pattern analysis, lesion classification, and database construction. The approaches described are state of the art and the details are sine qua non. … a good addition on the dermatologist and researcher’s bookshelf, and pilots further research in this field.”
