Abstract

Visual observation and dermoscopic analysis are the most common methods of diagnosing skin cancer. In advanced stages, melanomas spread faster and are less responsive to treatment. Because different lesions in the skin appear similar to one another and sometimes errors in identification occur, the accuracy of diagnosis will decrease significantly when the amount of received images is large. However, the proposed methods for estimating skin lesions and their separation from melanoma have uncertainties and are not generalizable. This paper proposes an optimal decision tree (DT)-based approach, including fuzzy-ID3-pValue and Bayes learning algorithms, which overcomes these challenges. When classifying images, DTs employ a multi-stage procedure to partition the feature space, which enhances their ease of use, precision, and speed. Inference engines are used in fuzzy logic to derive logical deductions about knowledge, which facilitates learning DT and Bayesian learning. Taking advantage of the DT dependency structure, we present a novel fuzzy DT for extracting precise and collaborative fuzzy rules. Furthermore, to emphasize the cohesive nature of the laws, a weighted method is employed. Besides, the inference engine system is constructed through deductive and inductive inference engines. The proposed method is verified using the ISIC-2019 dataset as well as the PH2 images, both of which contain dermoscopic images of multiple lesions. The proposed method provides efficient results with 96% and 88% accuracy for ISIC-2019 and PH2 data, respectively.
