Using 3D information for classification of non-melanoma skin lesions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


New sensors allow simultaneous acquisition of 3D shape and colour data of skin at resolutions theoretically approaching cellular structures. We investigate whether the addition of 3D depth information increases classification rates relative to only using colour information for 5 non-melanoma skin lesions. The paper demonstrates that there is 6% increase in classification rates.
