The International Skin Imaging Collaboration is an academia-industry partnership designed to facilitate digital skin imaging technologies to help reduce melanoma mortality. The current era of smart-phone technology presents an exciting opportunity for digital photography as an aid to early diagnosis of melanoma. However, the promise of digitally assisted melanoma diagnosis is currently hampered by: A lack of standards for dermatologic imaging, and Limited access of educators and developers to large numbers of high quality clinically annotated skin lesion images. ISIC aims to address these challenges by proposing international standards for dermatologic imaging and creating a large open source public archive of annotated high quality skin images. Current efforts in melanoma education and diagnosis typically rely on small convenience samples of images which vary in both image quality and quality of annotation. The ISIC Archive has been developed to provide a large public repository of expertly annotated high quality skin images for use by: Clinicians and educators to improve diagnostic skills and provide clinical support in the identification of skin cancer The general public for self-education about melanoma and the benefits of early detection Developers to develop and test algorithms for skin cancer triage and diagnosis
