The value of data in iToBoS system


The overall aim of the iToBoS project is to build new diagnostic tools for the early detection of melanoma, exploiting all the available information of the patient.

The platform includes a novel total body scanner and a Computer Aided Diagnostics (CAD) tool, allowing the final system to incorporate basic demographic data (e.g., age, sex and socio-economic data), clinical phenotype  (i.e., anatomical location of every lesion and skin phototype), genotype (i.e., mutations in hereditary melanoma genes and  genetic variations in melanoma susceptibility genes) and an imaging phenotype including number and size of naevi, degree and area of photo-damaged skin, as well as clinical  dermoscopic image characteristics of the lesions, acquired  by the total-body high-resolution scanner.
