Paper Abstract

Spectrophotometry of in vivo skin pigmented lesions by means of an integrating sphere coupled to a conventional spectrophotometer has recently been suggested as a useful tool to discriminate cutaneous melanoma from other pigmented cutaneous lesions. To improve reflectance spectral analysis of moles, a new spectrophotometric procedure based on the use of a CCD camera provided with interferential filters has been developed. Preliminary results suggest that the new method, allowing a spatially resolved analysis of the spectral components from 420 to 1040 nm, would improve, when properly implemented with imaging data handling, the quality of a computer assisted diagnosis of malignant lesions.
