What's already known about this topic?

  • Computer-assisted diagnosis (CAD) of melanoma has been advocated to improve clinical diagnostic accuracy.
  • Existing CAD systems can only partially simulate the procedure adopted by dermatologists in making a diagnosis.

What does this study add?

  • In addition to information on the individual lesion itself, patient metadata are, for the first time, incorporated to form a new CAD system for melanoma diagnosis.
  • The integration of clinical metadata helps to improve the performance of automatic identification of melanoma.
