Dermoscopy of Spitz/Reed naevi and management.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

First Department of Dermatology, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece -

Since their first description by Sophie Spitz, Spitz nevi have been a subject of controversy among clinicians for many decades, and remain a clinical conundrum until today as their etiology, morphology, biological behavior and natural evolution is still not totally clear. This is becauase their clinical, dermoscopic and histopathologic features sometimes overlap with those of melanoma, rendering the management of spitzoid lesions particularly difficult. In addition, cases of histopathologically equivocal lesions do exist and their classification might sometimes be very challenging. Read More

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Dermatology department, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.

Diagnosis of actinic keratosis (AK) is mainly clinical, but dermoscopy has proven useful in improving diagnostic accuracy. The patterns, structures and colors of AK can vary widely. Lesions may appear as white scales on a pseudo-network pattern, as keratotic plugs on a scaly white to yellow background, or as a strawberry pattern with white to yellow areas and keratotic follicular openings on an erythematous background.

In-vivo assessment of a case of cutaneous sarcoidosis using reflectance confocal microscopy.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Jan-Feb;94(1):93-95

Dermatology Service, Department of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, United States of America.

Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging technique that allows visualization of the epidermis and papillary dermis with cellular-level resolution. Granulomatous reactions such as sarcoidosis could be assessed using RCM. The identification of bright beaded-like structures that could correspond to reticulin fibers overlying granulomas, in association with dermoscopy, may be a very useful approach in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis and for the differentiation of this granulomatous entity with superficial cutaneous metastasis.

Microvascular imaging of the skin.

Phys Med Biol 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Bioengineering, University of Washington, 5306 24th Ave NE #202, Foege Building, Rm #N410E, Seattle, Washington, 98195, UNITED STATES.

Despite our understanding that the microvasculature plays a multifaceted role in the development and progression of various conditions, we know little about the extent of this involvement. A need exists for non-invasive, clinically meaningful imaging modalities capable of elucidating microvascular information to aid in our understanding of disease, and to aid in the diagnosis/monitoring of disease for more patient-specific care. In this review article, a number of imaging techniques are summarized that have been utilized to investigate the microvasculature of skin, along with their advantages, disadvantages and future perspectives in preclinical and clinical settings.

Dermoscopy Image Analysis: Overview and Future Directions.

IEEE J Biomed Health Inform 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive skin imaging technique that permits visualization of features of pigmented melanocytic neoplasms that are not discernable by examination with the naked eye. While studies on the automated analysis of dermoscopy images date back to the late 1990s, because of various factors (lack of publicly available datasets, open-source software, computational power, etc.), the field progressed rather slowly in its first two decades.

Attention Residual Learning for Skin Lesion Classification.

IEEE Trans Med Imaging 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Automated skin lesion classification in dermoscopy images is an essential way to improve the diagnostic performance and reduce melanoma deaths. Although deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) have made dramatic breakthroughs in many image classification tasks, accurate classification of skin lesions remains challenging due to the insufficiency of training data, inter-class similarity, intra-class variation, and lack of the ability to focus on semantically meaningful lesion parts. To address these issues, we propose an attention residual learning convolutional neural network (ARL-CNN) model for skin lesion classification in dermoscopy images, which is composed of multiple ARL blocks, a global average pooling layer, and a classification layer.

Trichoscopy of Dark Scalp.

Skin Appendage Disord 2018 Nov 18;5(1):1-8. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Dermatology, University of Miami, Miami, Florida, USA.

Trichoscopy (dermoscopy of the hair and scalp) is a technique that improves diagnostic accuracy and follow-up with hair and scalp disorders. Although several studies of trichoscopy have been made in Caucasian and Asian populations, little has been published regarding trichoscopy findings in skin of color, despite the great prevalence of hair diseases in populations with this kind of skin. The aim of this review was to describe the trichoscopic features of normal scalp and of hair disorders in patients with dark skin phototypes. Read More

Methods of melanoma detection and of skin monitoring for individuals at high risk of melanoma: new Australian clinical practice.

Med J Aust 2019 Jan 2;210(1):41-47. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Melanoma Institute Australia, Sydney, NSW.

Introduction: The evidence-based national clinical practice guidelines for the management of cutaneous melanoma published in 2008 are currently being updated. This article summarises the findings from multiple chapters of the guidelines on different methods of melanoma detection and of monitoring the skin for patients at high risk of melanoma. Early detection of melanoma is critical, as thinner tumours are associated with enhanced survival; therefore, strategies to improve early detection are important to reduce melanoma-related mortality.

Deep Learning and Handcrafted Method Fusion: Higher Diagnostic Accuracy for Melanoma Dermoscopy Images.

IEEE J Biomed Health Inform 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

This paper presents an approach that combines conventional image processing with deep learning by fusing the features from the individual techniques. We hypothesize that the two techniques, with different error profiles, are synergistic. The conventional image processing arm uses three handcrafted biologically inspired image processing modules and one clinical information module. Read More
