Whether a skin lesion can be assessed by SkinVision depends on whether the skin lesion can be accurately photographed with the automatic camera software of SkinVision. In some cases, this is not possible.
1. When there is something covering the lesion or skin spot, obstructing the view of the camera.
Example: Hair, a tattoo, blood or other fluids are covering the lesion.
2. When the lesion is close to or on a skin fold.
Example: When the lesion is close to an ear, a belly button, or on a lip. This might cause our image recognition software to be unable to make a distinction between the lesion and the skin fold.
3. When there is not enough contrast between the skin lesion and the skin of the user.
Example: A light colored skin lesion on light skin, or a dark colored skin lesion on dark skin.
4. Multiple skin spots close together
Example: When multiple skin spots such as moles or eczema are close together, it is difficult for our assessment to distinguish the one that needs the assessment. Therefore, these spots can not be assessed.
