You can analyze
mole colors by drawing a color map and by using a color filter.
color map is an easy way to detect substructures in a mole.
When drawing a color map, MoleSense divides the pixels
inside a mole into five groups according to their color brightness level. Each
of the five groups is given an artificial color, with red representing the
darkest mole colors and aqua representing the brightest mole colors.
The color filter
can be used to:
the colors in the image in order of brightness (i.e. from the darkest to
the brightest) and easily step through the colors in that order (usually
the darker colors are inside a mole, while the surrounding skin has
substructures in a mole.
- Block or
view specific colors in the image. Computer monitors support millions of
colors and the filter can block or pass a single color, or a window
(i.e. range) of colors.
