Automatic boundary detection and symmetry calculation in dermoscopy images of skin lesions

Abstract

This paper develops an approach and tool that automatically extracts skin lesion's boundary used for symmetry and area calculation. An image enhancement approach prepares every image for active contour (AC) evolution. Further, the AC automatically extracts the lesion's boundary used to measure symmetry applying minimal boundary box. Next, the lesion's area… (More)
