Abstract

"Irregular networks are one of the characteristics of skin cancer such as malignant melanoma. Automoated diagnosis of skin cancer requires extraction of lesion features like color, texture, border irregularity, asymmetry, network structures, etc. This thesis presents an automated approach to determine salient points on pigment networks. The percentage of salient points contained in the total lesion area is used to distinguish malignant melanomas and Clarks nevi. The salient points are the candidate line points on a pigment network obtained by implementing a part of Steger's 2D line extraction algorithm."--Abstract, leaf iii.
