This paper presents an unsupervised segmentation scheme to isolate pigmented skin lesion from surrounding normal skin. An adaptive mean-shift algorithm combined with maximal similarity based region merging is applied with a colour-spatial feature space to improve the efficiency and robustness of the segmentation approach. Upon comparison, the proposed method demonstrates good performance in achieving an automatic segmentation on various real skin data collected by ourselves and those downloaded from public dataset.
