Deep learning for melanoma detection

Melanoma is a major cause of death.

Although melanoma constitutes only 1% of the diagnosed skin cancer cases, 75% of deaths are caused by melanoma 

The dermatologist has to interpret a large number of images in a limited period of time.

Interpretation of skin images is limited

Subjectivity

A definitive proof will be missing as the result is biased by the subjective interpretation of the dermatologist.

Fatigue

Variations

The interpretation will have large variations among different dermatologists.
