BACKGROUND The presence of an atypical (irregular) pigment network (APN) can indicate a diagnosis of melanoma. This study sought to analyze the APN with texture measures. METHODS For 106 dermoscopy images including 28 melanomas and 78 benign dysplastic nevi, the areas of APN were selected manually. Ten texture measures in the CVIPtools image analysis(More)
Granularity, also called peppering and multiple blue-grey dots, is defined as an accumulation of tiny, blue-grey granules in dermoscopy images. Granularity is most closely associated with a diagnosis of malignant melanoma. This study analyzes areas of granularity with color and texture measures to discriminate granularity in melanoma from similar areas in(More)
BACKGROUND Dermoscopy, also known as dermatoscopy or epiluminescence microscopy (ELM), is a non-invasive, in vivo technique, which permits visualization of features of pigmented melanocytic neoplasms that are not discernable by examination with the naked eye. One prominent feature useful for melanoma detection in dermoscopy images is the asymmetric blotch(More)
Dermoscopy, also known as dermatoscopy or epiluminescence microscopy (ELM), permits visualization of features of pigmented melanocytic neoplasms that are not discernable by examination with the naked eye. White areas, prominent in early malignant melanoma and melanoma in situ, contribute to early detection of these lesions. An adaptive detection method has(More)
BACKGROUND Semitranslucency, defined as a smooth, jelly-like area with varied, near-skin-tone color, can indicate a diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) with high specificity. This study sought to analyze potential areas of semitranslucency with histogram-derived texture and color measures to discriminate BCC from non-semitranslucent areas in non-BCC(More)
The present study focused on the development of an effective oral vaccine delivery system of poly(vinyl alcohol)-coated chitosan microparticles-based recombinant hepatitis B vaccine. Chitosan microparticles were prepared by ionotropic gelation technique; they were loaded with recombinant hepatitis B vaccine and coated with poly(vinyl alcohol). The average(More)
