Development of an image based system to objectively score the severity of phoriasis

David Delgado Gomez

    Research output: Book/ReportPh.D. thesis


    The objective of this thesis is to provide a possible solution to one of the current problems in dermatology: the lack of suitable methods to objectively evaluate the severity of dermatological lesions. An image based system is developed with the goal of automatically obtaining summarization values that characterize the lesion and help to track the evolution of the disease. The thesis starts by analyzing an accurate type of equipment with which collect dermatological images. Later, a method to segment the different areas embedded in dermatological lesions is developed. Results of the segmentation task will be used to obtain values that characterize the lesion. The last part of the thesis considers the possibility of including more bands in the analysis in order to increase the accuracy of the proposed method.
