e-Melanoma Diagnosing and Learning System. Current Status

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 284)


A new web tool for distant diagnosing and learning on melanocytic skin lesions (e-IMDLS) was developed and tested. Currently, two separated versions of the system (Polish and English) are implemented and accessible by Internet. Here, the main features of the English version of e-IMDLS system are briefly discussed. Synthesis of digital images of selected skin lesions by the system is discussed; some possibilities and limitations of this algorithmic process are commented. Finally, the way of using the system by experienced dermatologists and/or family physicians is also described.
