My Current Research : Automatic Melanoma Detection in Skin Images
The incidence of malignant melanoma, a disease of worldwide distribution, has been rapidly increasing over the last few decades, especially among Caucasians. Early detection and prompt surgery represent the only curative management of patients affected by the disease. I am working on a method for automatic melanoma diagnosis.
