Lesion Matching automatically detects and matches skin lesions from similar images taken at two different times. The matched lesions are sorted based on the amount of change in their size and color to help you find the lesions that have changed most. (To learn how to first run Lesion Mapping click here). To learn how to run Lesion Matching follow the instructions below:
- Click the Patients button in the top menu bar. Then, click the “...” button for your corresponding patient and select the Full-Body Imaging option.
Alternatively, if you are already in the patient's profile, you may simply select the Full-Body button located at the top right corner.
- Next, click the desired body section, then select the images you would like to compare.
- Click Start Matching. Please wait a moment, as it may take time to process this request depending on the number of spots on that patient.
- Once matched, you can use the sensitivity slider to select the number of moles you would like the algorithm to identify. (You have the option of editing or adding to these at any time.) All detected spots will be paired in the viewing column on the right. Here, these will be sorted and color coded based on amount of change:
1. Purple: Change detected
2. Blue: Possible change detected
3. Grey: No change detected
- From here, you have the ability to review the list; clicking an image will provide you with the following options:
1. No Change
2. Wrong Match
3. Take Dermoscopic Image
- To get a better look at a spot, you can use the paired slider to get a magnified view of both images at once.
