Paper Abstract

This project's goal is to determine how to effectively implement a technology continuum from a low cost, remotely deployable imaging device to a more sophisticated multimode imaging system within a standard clinical practice. In this work a smartphone is used in conjunction with an optical attachment to capture cross-polarized and collinear color images of a nevus that are analyzed to quantify chromophore distribution. The nevus is also imaged by a multimode hyperspectral system, our proprietary SkinSpect™ device. Relative accuracy and biological plausibility of the two systems algorithms are compared to assess aspects of feasibility of in-home or primary care practitioner smartphone screening prior to rigorous clinical analysis via the SkinSpect.
