The aim of this study is to develop and evaluate a new set of color features and their performance on the classification of skin lesions. The proposed system introduces new features based on 2-dimensional color histograms, an automated segmentation method using a fusion of thresholding methods, classification procedures and is designed to be used by dermatologists as a complete integrated dermatological analysis tool to improve the rate of correct diagnosis above 90%. Simulations are implemented to show the measured features as well as classification results. The outcomes showed that the CAD model discussed in this paper has an improved classification performance and is an objective diagnostic tool that can be used in medical practice.
