Dermofit Image Library
The Dermofit Image Library provides a collection of high quality skin lesion images for use as a research tool in computer science and medical imaging.
The Dermofit Image Library is a collection of 1,300 focal high quality skin lesion images collected under standardised conditions with internal colour standards. The lesions span across ten different classes including melanomas, seborrhoeic keratosis and basal cell carcinomas. Each image has a gold standard diagnosis based on expert opinion (including dermatologists and dermatopathologists). Images consist of a snapshot of the lesion surrounded by some normal skin. A binary segmentation mask that denotes the lesion area is included with each lesion. The categories of lesions and number of associated images is listed below.
|Number of images
|Basal Cell Carcinoma
|Melanocytic Nevus (mole)
|Squamous Cell Carcinoma
The Dermofit Image Library is available under an academic licence. There is a one-off £75 licence fee associated with this product.
