Abstract

Of all suspicious pigmented skin lesions considered for analysis, a large portion is often benign. The pressure of pathology services and secondary care must be reduced throughout the patient trials using modern techniques for improving the melanoma diagnosis accuracy. Dermoscopic images obtained from digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, smartphones and a lightweight USB camera are compared using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for determining the accuracy of melanoma identification. Datasets are obtained from thousand test samples undergoing plastic surgery. The diagnostic trial is masked, single arm and multicentered. The controlled and suspicious skin lesions as well as the suspicious pigmented skin lesion are captured on the aforementioned cameras while scheduling for biopsy. The possibility of melanoma is assessed using deep learning (DL) techniques on the pigmented skin lesions seen in the dermascopic images for identifying melanoma. For this purpose, we train a deterministic AI algorithm based on malignancy recognition by deep ensemble and inputs from clinicians. The histopathology diagnosis is used as a standard criterion for determining the specialist assessment, algorithmic specificity, sensitivity and the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC).
