Abstract

Early and reliable melanoma detection is one of today's significant challenges for dermatologists to allow successful cancer treatment. This paper introduces multispectral rotationally invariant textural features of the Markovian type applied to effective skin cancerous lesions classification. Presented texture features are inferred from the descriptive multispectral circular wide-sense Markov model. Unlike the alternative texture-based recognition methods, mainly using different discriminative textural descriptions, our textural representation is fully descriptive multispectral and rotationally invariant. The presented method achieves high accuracy for skin lesion categorization. We tested our classifier on the open-source dermoscopic ISIC database, containing 23 901 benign or malignant lesions images, where the classifier outperformed several deep neural network alternatives while using smaller training data.
