The automatic analysis of dermoscopy images is often impaired by artifacts such as air bubbles, specular reflections or dark hair covering the skin lesions. Consequently, an important pre-processing step includes their detection and elimination. The most common and probably the most compromising of these artifacts is the presence of hair and therefore specific algorithms are required for its detection. This paper proposes a method for the detection of hair in dermoscopy images based on an… CONTINUE READING
