Based on an image processing technique, the peculiarity of the technique proposed here, is to get eight successive images of the skin, each one of a different degree of "depth". Thus, the dermascope is capable to see "more" than the eyes of a dermatologist and offers a real added value to the current techniques.
The collected data is then transferred to the cloud for analysis, which also includes a use of GPU. The subject then receives a notification of the results from the analysis on its smartphone.
The biggest innovation of this project is the development of a multispectral dermascope. Eight different wavelengths, which are subtly chosen, allow a thorough vision under the skin. The first series of tests were already performed by a private dermatologist.
