Abstract:

Malignant melanoma, as the most dangerous form of skin cancer, has been a rapidly growing threat over the past decades. Due to the changes in recreational behavior of the population is its incidence, not only in the Czech Republic, constantly growing. The only, but very effective, treatment of this deadly disease is the surgical excision of melanoma in its early stage. An early diagnosis of the disease is therefore crucial. In this work the most promising techniques used nowadays for automated melanoma recognition are introduced. At the same time their biggest drawbacks are presented and an improvement for their removal is introduced.
