3D NON-INVASIVE INSPECTION OF THE SKIN LESIONS BY CLOSE-RANGE AND LOW-COST PHOTOGRAMMETRIC TECHNIQUES

Abstract

In dermatology, one of the most common causes of skin abnormality is an unusual change in skin lesion structure which may exhibit very subtle physical deformation of its 3D shape. However the geometrical sensitivity of current cost-effective inspection and measurement methods may not be sufficient to detect such small progressive changes in skin lesion structure at micro-scale. Our proposed method could provide a low-cost, non-invasive solution by a compact system solution to overcome these shortcomings by using close-range photogrammetric imaging techniques to build a 3D surface model for a continuous observation of subtle changes in skin lesions and other features.
