Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a report about our examining of the validity of OCT in identifying changes using a skin cancer texture analysis compiled from Haralick texture features, fractal dimension, Markov random field method and the complex directional features from different tissues. Described features have been used to detect specific spatial characteristics, which can differentiate healthy tissue from diverse skin cancers in cross-section OCT images (B- and/or C-scans). In this work, we used an interval type-II fuzzy anisotropic diffusion algorithm for speckle noise reduction in OCT images. The Haralick texture features as contrast, correlation, energy, and homogeneity have been calculated in various directions. A box-counting method is performed to evaluate fractal dimension of skin probes. Markov random field have been used for the quality enhancing of the classifying. Additionally, we used the complex directional field calculated by the local gradient methodology to increase of the assessment quality of the diagnosis method. Our results demonstrate that these texture features may present helpful information to discriminate tumor from healthy tissue. The experimental data set contains 488 OCT-images with normal skin and tumors as Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Malignant Melanoma (MM) and Nevus. All images were acquired from our laboratory SD-OCT setup based on broadband light source, delivering an output power of 20 mW at the central wavelength of 840 nm with a bandwidth of 25 nm. We obtained sensitivity about 97% and specificity about 73% for a task of discrimination between MM and Nevus.
