“…The average test results over 18 trials from all the α-cuts cases yield tp rates of greater than 86.0% and tn rates of greater than 77.0%. These results are close to the diagnostic sensitivity reported for unaided dermatologist observers [1][2][3]5]. Third, the experimental results demonstrate that the fuzzy logic-based histogram analysis technique can be successfully applied to differentiating melanoma from benign skin lesions in clinical images.…”

“…The diagnostic sensitivity reported for unaided dermatologist observers ranges from a low of about 66% to about 81% [1][2][3]5]. Diagnostic accuracy for non-dermatologists is believed to be lower.…”

“…A total of 462 were excluded because they were studies of basic science pathophysiology, new diagnostic tests, etiology, pediatric populations, therapeutics, or noncutaneous manifestations of melanoma. Two studies 14,15 were excluded because they represented duplications of included studies. 16,17 Another study did not report the number of melanomas that were shown to the subjects.…”

“…The diagnostic accuracy of clinical examination is in the order of 64–80% [1,2,3], however, prompting the development of noninvasive technologies such as dermoscopy [4,5,6,7], image analysis [8] and more recently in vivoreflectance mode confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM) [9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22]. In addition, improved diagnostic accuracy could help reduce the unnecessary removal of benign lesions with the associated morbidity.…”
