Mole pattern changes are important elements in detecting cancerous skin lesions, the early stage detection is a key factor to completely cure the pathology. In this paper, an automatic system for mole-tracking is indicated. The method presented is been realized as a mobile app and can be used to perform periodically a careful self-examination of their pigmented skin lesions. The implemented method receives in input two segmented images of the same pigmented skin lesion corresponding to the
more &raquo; ... l image and to the image before the last period under test. The method performs image matching and changes evaluation adopting a three stage artificial neural network and provides as output a risk indicator related to the morphology changes of the skin lesion.
