Title

Adaptive Segmentation of Gray Areas in Dermoscopy Images

Abstract

In this work, a dermoscopic image analysis technique is proposed. A novel approach, based on the detection of gray areas using image analysis techniques is explored. To this aim, a statistical histogram analysis is carried out using the HSB color space to derive the relationship between the skewness and the mean of the brightness color plane histogram. The derived framework is used for adaptive thresholding of gray area regions within a skin lesion image.
