Computerized comparison of serial skin images is a potentially valuable tool for melanoma screening. In automating this process, matching or "registering" each lesion in a pair of images plays an important role in looking for clinically significant change. We have investigated three practical techniques--a point pattern correlation, a 2-point geometrical transformation, and a 3-point geometrical transformation--for their effectiveness in matching and identifying lesions in pairs of skin images… CONTINUE READING
