Sector expansion and elliptical modeling of blue-gray ovoids for basal cell carcinoma discrimination in dermoscopy images.


BACKGROUND Blue-gray ovoids (B-GOs), a critical dermoscopic structure for basal cell carcinoma (BCC), offer an opportunity for automatic detection of BCC. Due to variation in size and color, B-GOs can be easily mistaken for similar structures in benign lesions. Analysis of these structures could afford accurate characterization and automatic recognition of… (More)
