Summary:

The aim: to study the dynamics of the incidence of skin melanoma among various population groups of the multi-million territory. Material and Methods. Primary accounting records for 21 years (1995-2016) on the newly diagnosed disease, annual reports of the Samara Regional Clinical Oncology Center, annual statistical reports of the established form (Form 7 and Form 35). The following statistical methods were used: extrapolation method, linear and polynomial regression model. Results. The results indicate an increase in the incidence of skin melanoma among older people. Conclusions are drawn about the need to organize screening examinations among groups with a high incidence of skin melanoma.

"Machine vision" application in digital dermoscopy for suspected melanoma of the skin

Year: 2014, volume 10 Issue: №2 Pages: 281-285
Heading: Oncology Article type: Original article
Authors: Kozlov S.V., Neretin E.Yu., Kukolkina V.V.
Organization: Samara State Medical University
Summary:

This article discusses one of the problems of oncology diagnosis of melanoma. Relevance of the topic has been supported by the fact that the annual incidence of patients with cancer pathology is constantly increasing. Various methods of diagnostics have been determined, but at the same time early diagnosis of melanoma is a problem. The aim is to reveal the possibilities of automated data processing during digital dermoscopy of melanoma in a specialized center. To solve this problem, the following materials and methods have been used: records for the period of 16 years (1996-2010), annual reports of Samara Regional Clinical Oncology Center of newly diagnosed melanoma of skin, annual statistical reports to the State Statistical Committee. The results indicate higher diagnostic accuracy in a specialized center and the advantages of digital dermoscopy in comparison with visual inspection, comparable with a qualified inspection in a specialized center. The article concludes that the possibility of use of this expert system on specialized levels is considered as a secondary factor in the diagnosis and the choice of treatment.

Comparative analysis of methods of preinvasive melanoma diagnostics

Year: 2013, volume 9 Issue: №1 Pages: 88-91
Heading: Oncology Article type: Original article
Authors: Kozlov S.V., Neretin Е.У.
Organization: Samara State Medical University
Summary:

The article discusses one of the problems of oncology — skin melanoma. The research objective is to study and to compare diagnostic methods of preinvasive melanoma including fluorescence diagnosis, dermatoscopy and microwave radiometry. Materials and Methods: The survey has used dermatoscope of Heine Delta 20 Company, the unit RTM-01-RES and the instrument of fluorescent diagnostics «Spectrum-Cluster.» The results suggest the possibility of early detection of melanoma with the use of dermatoscopy. The method may be applied to radiometry screening study. Fluorescence diagnostics is effective for the differential diagnosis of melanoma and melanocytic nevi. In conclusion it has been proved the need for an integrated approach to the diagnostics of melanoma of skin, depending on the different clinical situations.
