Colour assessment of pigmented skin lesions are essential for the diagnosis of malignant melanoma. However, visual interpretation of colour is subjective and prone to error. Computer programs can provide support to clinicians to overcome this subjectivity. So far, methods for colour analysis of this nature have utilised statistical classification models. This paper puts forward an alternative framework: an effort to reproduce the experience of human observer. The proposed method introduces a perceptually intuitive and semantically meaningful approach for colour and colour-related feature detection. As a case study, the task of automatic detection and segmentation of blue-white veil feature in dermoscopy images is examined. Our proposed method, as shown in our experiments, outperforms the prior art for this task, while it attempts to mimic the human perception of skin lesion colours.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
