Dermoscopy Image Analysis Book Review:

Dermoscopy is a noninvasive skin imaging technique that uses optical magnification and either liquid immersion or cross-polarized lighting to make subsurface structures more easily visible when compared to conventional clinical images. It allows for the identification of dozens of morphological features that are particularly important in identifying malignant melanoma. Dermoscopy Image Analysis summarizes the state of the art of the computerized analysis of dermoscopy images. The book begins by discussing the influence of color normalization on classification accuracy and then: Investigates gray-world, max-RGB, and shades-of-gray color constancy algorithms, showing significant gains in sensitivity and specificity on a heterogeneous set of images Proposes a new color space that highlights the distribution of underlying melanin and hemoglobin color pigments, leading to more accurate classification and border detection results Determines that the latest border detection algorithms can achieve a level of agreement that is only slightly lower than the level of agreement among experienced dermatologists Provides a comprehensive review of various methods for border detection, pigment network extraction, global pattern extraction, streak detection, and perceptually significant color detection Details a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system for melanomas that features an inexpensive acquisition tool, clinically meaningful features, and interpretable classification feedback Presents a highly scalable CAD system implemented in the MapReduce framework, a novel CAD system for melanomas, and an overview of dermatological image databases Describes projects that made use of a publicly available database of dermoscopy images, which contains 200 high-quality images along with their medical annotations Dermoscopy Image Analysis not only showcases recent advances but also explores future directions for this exciting subfield of medical image analysis, covering dermoscopy image analysis from preprocessing to classification.

"This is a useful tool for any healthcare provider interested in dermatology, whether a new resident just starting to study skin disease or a seasoned practitioner wishing to learn a new skill....What is especially helpful is the labeling of the dermoscopic photo, making it easier to learn the various criteria and structures. Moreover, each case has a diagnostic pearls section that adds much didactic value....What is most unique and valuable is that readers are not just passively reading about a subject, but are drawn to actively participate and make decisions. When they turn the page, they can then contemplate the explanations and determine areas where they need improvement. The only thing that would top this book would be to have one of the authors alongside the reader at the bedside examining a patient. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning dermoscopy."--Doody's Review Service With 300 full-color illustrations of 191 separate cases commonly encountered in general dermatologic practice, Dermoscopy: An Illustrated Guide offers a unique check-list methodology for learning how to use dermoscopy to diagnose benign and malignant pigmented and non-pigmented skin lesions. For each of the 191 cases, you will find a series of high-quality full-color clinical and dermoscopic images, each with a short history. Every case is followed by five true-or-false questions along with three check boxes to test your knowledge acquisition and decision-making ability on “Risk, Diagnosis, and Disposition.” Turn the page and the answers to the questions are provided in a unique, memorable manner in which the dermoscopic images are presented again. Circles, stars, boxes, and arrows appear in the image pointing out the important dermoscopic criteria of each case. Features Cases are taken from lesions of the scalp, face, nose, lips, ears, trunk, extremities, palms, soles, nails and genitalia The global features and local criteria for each case are highlighted, which the authors have found to be a valuable teaching tool The concepts of clinico-dermoscopic correlation , dermoscopic-pathologic correlation and dermoscopic differential diagnosis are employed throughout the book Each case includes a discussion of all of its salient features in a quick-read outline style and ends with a series of dermoscopic and/or clinical pearls based on the authors’ years of experience treating skin cancers Key dermoscopic principles are re-emphasized throughout the book to enhance the reader’s understanding and assimilation of the teaching points Dermoscopy: An Illustrated Self-Assessment Guide offers a simple, innovative, and highly-visual approach to learning the general principles, terminology, and specific criteria of dermoscopy to enhance your ability to utilize this powerful tool, which is both tissue sparing and potentially lifesaving.
