Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a new approach of the speckle phenomenon. This method is based on the fractal Brownian motion theory and allows the extraction of three stochastic parameters to characterize the speckle pattern. For the first time, we present the results of this method applied to the discrimination of the healthy vs. pathologic skin. We also demonstrate, in case of the scleroderma, than this method is more accurate than the classical frequential approach.
