Author Affiliations +
A clinical trial on multi-spectral imaging of malignant and non-malignant skin pathologies comprising 22 melanomas and 59 pigmented nevi was performed in Latvian Oncology Center. Analysis of data obtained in the spectral range 450-950 nm using multispectral camera have led to a novel image processing algorithm capable to distinguish melanoma from pigmented nevi and different areas of activity of melanoma. The proposed methodology and potential clinical applications are discussed.
