The iToBoS project revolves around the use of artificial intelligence algorithms to analyse the images from the patient’s skin and give a comprehensive output to the doctors to help on their diagnostic.
This new tool should allow the doctors to detect early signs of melanoma and to follow the evolution of the skin lesions from visit to visit. However, to improve the currently used hand-held dermathoscopes, not only the analysis and reporting functions to be developed in the project are important. Another important goal is to create a full-body avatar of the patient with high-resolution images of the skin that renders obsolete the single pictures of local regions of the skin.
