SMARTSKINS is a mobile-based framework for risk triage and early diagnosis of skin cancers, with the active involvement of an online community of dermatologists.

Patient-oriented approaches are a new paradigm for skin lesion analysis. The SMARTSKINS solution aims to motivate and educate patients for the regular monitoring of their skin health status, as well as improving the communication between patients and dermatologists. The final goal the SMARTSKINS solution is to have a significant impact in early diagnosis of skin cancers.

“SMARTSKINS: A Novel Framework for Supervised Mobile Assessment and Risk Triage of Skin lesions via Non-invasive Screening” is a joint project with INEGI-LAETA, Fraunhofer and IPO-Porto financially supported by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia in Portugal (PTDC/BBB-BMD/3088/2012).
