In the iToBoS project, the so-called 3D cameras are used. These cameras enable us to make a virtual representation of the patient. This can help the dermatologists to match dermoscopic images of lesions with the lesions on the body of the patient.
Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Late-stage skin cancers spreads to internal organs and become fatal. Early-stage skin cancer can be cured with a high survival rate, while the 5-year survival rate for skin cancer is extremely low. Therefore, early detection is the key in fighting skin cancer.
