Analysis of Different Psoriasis Skin Images

Ashwini C Bolkote, M. B. Tadwalkar


A skin disease diagnosis system was developed and tested the study. The technique was used for diagnosis of psoriases skin disease. This study relied on both skin color & texture features (features derives from the GLCM) to give a more efficient and better recognition accuracy of skin diseases. Feed forward neural networks are used to classify input images to be infected or non infected Psoriasis.
