    Abstract

    In this paper, we present an architecture for classification of pigmented skin lesions from dermatoscopic images. The architecture is using image preprocessing for natural hair removal and image segmentation for extraction of the skin lesion area followed by computation of statistical values of colors as features. The color-based features were extracted from several well-known and widely used color models. Several classification algorithms were evaluated with the best performing classification algorithm being the AdaBoost with random forest classifier with classification accuracy equal to 73.08% when using RGB-based features only and 74.26% when combining RGB, HSV, and YIQ color model-based features.
