Moletest: A Web-based Skin Cancer Screening System
Blackledge, Jonathan; Dubovitskiy, Dymitiy A
This paper reports on a research and development programme undertaken in the Bioengineering Research Group at Dublin Institute of Technology which led to the launch, in September 2010, of a new SME called Moletest UK Limited. Based on an exclusive license awarded by Dublin Institute of Technology in 2010, we report of the development of the world’s first remote skin cancer screening system which is based on a customer uploading a good quality digital image of a suspect mole. A ‘background to the case’ is given and the concept of the approach discussed together with an overview of the methods and algorithms developed in order to provide the service now available.
