Mobile Teledermatology is a promising tool with the potential to empower patients to adopt an active role in managing their own health status. The main objective of this work is to create a mobile-based framework for risk triage and early diagnosis of skin cancers, with the active involvement of an online community of dermatologists. The presented prototype is composed by the following components: 1) Mobile Application for the patients; 2) Back-end Server that hosts the image processing module and database; and 3) Web Interface for the dermatologists. Using the mobile application, the patients can send a check-up to the back-end server, composed by an image and additional information of the considered skin lesion. The check-up image is automatically analyzed using supervised classification, according to the ABCD Rule and Overall Risk. The system generates an analysis report for each check-up, which will assist the doctors in the check-up risk assessment. After the docto r's validation, a report is sent to the patient's mobile application, and the validated data is used to retrain the supervised classifiers. The overall system architecture and functionalities are briefly described.
