Paper Abstract

The Skin Polarprobe, an automated melanoma diagnosis system, has the potential to greatly improve the chances of early detection of skin cancers and help save the lives of melanoma victims. This paper will describe the development of this device from the initial proof-of-concept phase (Phase I) using digitized slide images, through the first prototype video-based system (Phase II), to the current status of the production prototype system. Because of commercial confidentiality, precise details of each step cannot be given. However, some of the technical difficulties at each step will be described and some general points about how to overcome them will be discussed. Many of these comments will be generic to any imaging application.
