Skin Hair Simulator Software

Principal Investigator: Ghassan Hamarneh

Hair occlusion is one of the main challenges facing automatic lesion segmentation and feature extraction for skin cancer applications. Since hair shafts are very thin with spatially-varying width, validating disocclusion algorithms based on manual preparation of ground truth masks (with accurate hair-width for a large number of hair pixels) would be exorbitantly tedious. In this project, we have developed the first skin hair simulation software.

The HairSim software will be available for download soon.
