Vitiligo is a long term skin depigmentation disease that may result in psychological stress. Monitoring changes in vitiligo lesion area allows assessment of treatment efficacy and aids in clinical decision making. Currently existing approaches for vitiligo lesion measurement are either inefficient or inaccurate. Using a RGB-D camera (Kinect) and imaging processing techniques, we develop an automated skin lesion screening system (VLAMS) that can be widely adopted in clinics. VLAMS is tested using clinical medical data. Results show VLAMS can consistently segment target lesion region and accurately measure lesion area of any skin surface.
