Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Nevoscope is an optical imaging instrument that images and reconstructs pigmented lesions in three dimensions. Nevoscope provides a set of planar projections of pigmented inhomogeneity using transillumination. A novel algorithm used to reconstruct the volume of the skin lesion from the optical projections acquired using the Nevoscope. The annular ring source of the Nevoscope injects light in the visible spectrum into the skin surrounding the lesion. The light undergoes absorption and multiple scattering in the skin. Light photons are backscattered and re-emerge carrying information of the structure of the skin-lesion.
