Automatic Skin Lesion Segmentation based on Saliency and Color

Giuliana Ramella

Abstract

Segmenting skin lesions in dermoscopic images is a key step for the automatic diagnosis of melanoma. In this framework, this paper presents a new algorithm that after a pre-processing phase aimed at reducing the computation burden, removing artifacts and improving contrast, selects the skin lesion pixels in terms of their saliency and color. The method is tested on a publicly available dataset and is evaluated both qualitatively and quantitatively.
