Skin Disease detection based on different Segmentation Techniques


The outer integument of the human body is skin. The skin pigmentation of human beings varies from person to person and human skin type can be dry, oily, or combination. Such a variety in the human skin provides a diversified habitat for bacteria and other microorganisms. Melanocytes in the human skin, produces melanin which can absorb harmful ultraviolet radiation from sunlight which can damage the skin and result in skin cancer. The necessary tools needed for early detection of these diseases are still not a reality in most third world communities. If the symptoms of skin diseases such as acne, dermatomyositis, candidiasis, cellulitis, Scleroderma, chicken pox, ringworm, eczema, psoriasis, etc. are left untreated in its early stage then they can result in numerous health complications and even death. Image segmentation is a technique which aids with the detection of these skin diseases. In this paper, image processing techniques like adaptive thresholding, edge detection, K-means clustering and morphology-based image segmentation have been used to identify the skin diseases from the given image set. The acquired image set was pre-processed by deblurring, noise reduction and then processed. Depending on the definite pattern (pertaining to a distinct disease) present in the processed image the disease is detected at the output for a corresponding input image.
