Abstract
Skin cancer is a disease of the twenty-first century mainly caused by the excessive exposure to the sun without the appropriate solar protection. Melanoma, which is one of the most aggressive kinds of skin cancer, requires a rapid and effective diagnosis. Clinical examination and biopsies have shown to be slow and costly in many ways, so the possibility of getting a non-invasive optical detection of skin melanomas became a hot topic in biophotonics. In this context, multispectral imaging systems...
