Skin Cancer Detection using Digital Image Processing and Implementation using ANN and ABCD Features IJTSRD
Melanoma is a serious type of skin cancer. It starts in skin cells called melanocytes. There are 3 main types of skin cancer, Melanoma, Basal and Squamous cell carcinoma. Melanoma is more likely to spread to other parts of the body. Early detection of malignant melanoma in dermoscopy images is very important and critical, since its detection in the early stage can be helpful to cure it. Computer Aided Diagnosis systems can be very helpful to facilitate the early detection of cancers for dermatologists. Image processing is a commonly used method for skin cancer detection from the appearance of affected area on the skin. In this work, a computerised method has been developed to make use of Neural Networks in the field of medical image processing. The ultimate aim of this paper is to implement cost-effective emergency support systems to process the medical images. It is more advantageous to patients. The dermoscopy image of suspect area of skin cancer is taken and it goes under various pre-processing technique for noise removal and image enhancement. Then the image is undergone to segmentation using Thresholding method. Some features of image have to be extracted using ABCD rules. In this work, Asymmetry index and Geometric features are extracted from the segmented image. These features are given as the input to classifier. Artificial Neural Network ANN with feed forward architecture is used for classification purpose. It classifies the given image into cancerous or non-cancerous. The proposed algorithm has been tested on the ISIC International Skin Imaging Collaboration 2017 training and test datasets. The ground truth data of each image is available as well, so performance of this work can evaluate quantitatively.
