Independent Component Clustering for Skin Lesions Characterization

Abstract : In this paper, we propose a clustering technique for the recognition of pigmented skin lesions in dermatological images. It is known that computer vision-based diagnosis systems have been used aiming mostly at the early detection of skin cancer and more specifically the recognition of malignant melanoma tumor. The feature extraction is performed utilizing digital image processing methods, i.e. segmentation, border detection, color and texture processing. The proposed method combines an already successful clustering technique from the field of projection based clustering with a projection pursuit method. Experimental results show great performance on detecting the skin cancer.
