A piece of code that’s saving real, human lives: discussed exclusively at Intelligent Health Summit

Posted by Intelligent Health on May 15, 2019 11:32:42 AM

As reported in MobiHealthNews and Medium, a person can now download an app that allows them to monitor themselves for early signs of skin cancer by taking a photo of their skin spots with their smartphone.


This app with it’s cognitive code, created by SkinVision, calculates the fractal dimension of skin lesions and surrounding tissue and builds its own map that reveals different growth patterns. The algorithm checks for irregularities in colour, texture and the shape of the lesion and sends back its diagnosis: low, medium or high-risk. It correctly identifies dangerous melanomas 96% of the time, way better than family doctors (60%), dermatologists (75%) and even specialist dermatologists (92%). And all of this happens within 30 seconds of you pressing the button marked SEND.
