The core of the SkinVision solution is our unique algorithm. The proprietary mathematical algorithm calculates the fractal dimension of skin lesions and surrounding skin tissues and builds a structural map that reveals the different growth patterns of the tissues involved. The unique online assessment (algorithm) determines potential chaotic growth of pigmented and non-pigmented skin lesions. It then provides a green, yellow, or red risk rating, which indicates the severity of the mole or skin condition and how often it should be tracked over time. Please be aware that the assessment is not a medical diagnosis, and should not replace a visit to the doctor.
The accuracy of the online assessment (algorithm) has been scientifically tested in two studies. The first study started in 2013 at the dermatology clinic; Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. The second study took place from 2014 until 2016 at the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Tanja von Braunmühl from LMU states:
"SkinVision is a promising solution for awareness and self detection for individuals, and a new communication platform between the doctor and the individual."
