SpotMole provides a simple way to have a quick check of your skin spots and moles. SpotMole may detect signs of melanoma using image processing and pattern recognition techniques. Spotmole does a scan of relevant dermatological features.- This is the first mobile app to perform a true mole analysis using the device's camera/gallery and embedded algorithms.- Finalist app at the AppCircus - Mobile 2.0 Europe, event that took place on 16.06.2011, in Barcelona, Spain.- Featured app on The One Show, from the BBC-1, 05.09.2011Using SpotMole you first have to take a close-up and well centered snapshot of a skin spot or mole and next run an analysis. SpotMole automatic assessment software uses standard visual analysis proceedures to check spots on the skin. The features extracted are common in dermatology and widely employed in visual inspection of the skin spots. These are Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter and Evolution of the mole (ABCDE).Spotmole's output may be negatively influenced by images with poor contrast/brightness, color artifacts, nonuniform illumination, poor resolution, skin hairs covering the mole, etc.SpotMole is by no means a substitute for clinical diagnostics performed by trained dermatologists. Regardless of the output of the program you are urged to seek medical advice if you have doubts with a particular skin spot - mole.
