Abstract

This paper presents the design and construction of a digital dermoscopy. The operating principle consists on obtaining two magnified images of the pigmented lesion, the first illuminating with a white light source and the second with a near-infrared source. With the developed software, both images are overlap in order to get more features that help the dermatologist to diagnose malignant melanoma with more reliably and accurately. It was simulated for the used geometry the surface pattern of irradiation and it was developed a simulation software for any distribution of light emitting diodes irradiance.
