The extension of blotch features for melanoma discrimination in dermoscopy images

Author

Azmath Khan

Abstract

"The incidence of malignant melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, has been rapidly rising. One of the key features that are used to discriminate malignant melanoma from nevi in dermoscopy skin lesion images is the presence of blotches, also called structureless areas. In this research, variations of blotch features developed in a previous study are investigated for discriminating malignant melanoma from nevi skin lesions"--Abstract, leaf iii.
