Paper Abstract

In dermatology, image processing allows non-contact and non-invasive metrological measurements. Psoriasis is an incurable skin disease with an unknown origin. One of the most important tasks in the treatment of psoriasis is to evaluate the degree of the illness following a severity score. Dermatologists use visual and tactile senses to assess the lesions severity. In this article, we propose an automated methodology for assessing objectively the severity of psoriasis by measuring the physical parameters of the skin. Thus, from the colorimetry and geometry obtained by photometric-stereo, we determine the level of erythema and skin thickness. Our results show that for a low acquisition time, the scores obtained are highly correlated with those of dermatologists.
