How TBP Helps with Skin Lesion Correspondence Localization

Longitudinal tracking of skin lesions is beneficial to the early detection of melanoma. However, it has not been well-investigated in the context of full-body imaging. Watch this video to see a novel framework combining geometric and texture information to localize skin lesion correspondence from a source scan to a target scan in total body photography (TBP).

“Imagine that we want to look for a house in New York City. If we’re given the locations of some landmarks, like the Empire State Building, and how far the house is from those landmarks, we know the approximate region the house is located in,” explains Wei-Lun Huang , a doctoral candidate in the Department of Computer Science and a member of the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics’ Biomechanical and Image-Guided Surgical Systems Lab.
