Title: Effective Features to Classify Skin Lesions in Dermoscopic images
Issue Date: 2017-10-30
Abstract: Features such as shape and color are indispensable to determine whether a skin lesion is a melanomaor not. However, there are no fixed guidelines to define which features are effective and how to combine them for classification. This lack of definition impedes the development of the automatic analyses ofdermoscopic images. In this work, a search for effective features was carried out using a support vectormachine. Three image databases were used to verify the feasibility and sensitivity of the automatic classification used. The results showed which features had a major influence on the classification performance,and confirmed the need to use various types of features in this process.
