            Summary

                Spectrophotometric analysis (SPM) of the digital images of pigmented skin tumours was performed using ImageJ software. The following algorithm: selection of the area and segmentation of the tumours nevus image; decomposition of the image into primary colours (red, green and blue), and extraction of their histograms; histographic evaluation of the colour spectra using absolute and relative values and charts built using Microsoft Excel. To validate the method, the SPM values were correlated with the results of morphological study of the excised nevi.

We determined that the red color spectrogram is the main diagnostic measure. In it, we selected the following parameters: intensity of the red colour (Istart, Imax,) and АUC128 the total area under the graph.

The cluster analysis of the spectrophotograms to determine thresholds of the intensity of the red colour needed to differentiate malignant melanoma and dysplastic nevi were done. Melanomas can be characterized using the following values: Istart ≤ 18.5 units, Imax ≤ 115.5 units, AUC128 ≥ 5442.1. Opposite values are characteristic for dysplastic nevi.

 

Keywords: skin melanoma, melanocytic nevi, spectrophotometric analysis.


Keywords


skin melanoma, melanocytic nevi, spectrophotometric analysis.
