SkinVision uses a scientifically-proven algorithm to check the skin spot in the photo for visible signs of skin cancer. The algorithm has been developed and tested in cooperation with dermatologists and checks for irregularities in color, texture and shape of the lesion. The proprietary mathematical algorithm calculates the fractal dimension of skin lesions and surrounding skin tissues and builds a structural map that reveals the different growth patterns of the tissues involved. It indicates which skin spots should be tracked over time. Please be aware that the risk assessment does not provide a medical diagnosis, and should not replace a visit to your doctor.
