Title

A Relative Color Approach to Color Discrimination for Malignant Melanoma Detection in Dermoscopy Images

Abstract

Skin lesion color is an important feature for diagnosing malignant melanoma. In previous research, skin lesion color was investigated for discriminating malignant melanoma lesions from benign lesions in clinical images. Colors characteristics of melanoma were determined using color histogram analysis over a training set of images. Percent melanoma color and color clustering ratio features were used to quantify the presence of melanoma-colored pixels within skin lesions for skin lesion discrimination.
