Looks interesting. I don't see anything about the minimum spectifications for the digital camera. Did you see anything? $49.95 isn't too bad to take a risk on trying it but not if means that I have to go out and buy a $500 camera.

The DermAlert® software is designed to enable one to carefully compare images obtained at different times (e.g. 6 months or a year apart) to look for changes that have occurred in the intervening time. For example, it could be used to help find moles that are new or changing over time. The changes in the images are emphasized by using an alternating display presentation which provides a quick and easy aid to finding the new or changing moles. (see example of this type of display in action: alternating display demo).

The key to employing this technique is to obtain images at different times that are sufficiently aligned to allow for the alternating display method to be effective. The DermAlert® software provides several functions that enable this to be accomplished. This includes the printing of template guides that can be placed over the LCD viewfinder of a typical digital camera that enable the acquisition of photographs that are well aligned with an original set of baseline images. The DermAlert® software has the capability to automatically adjust the scale of the images so that images being compared are of similar scales. Finally, the DermAlert® software has a software based alignment tool that can then be used to fine-tune image alignment interactively to get a final optimal alignment.

The result of these flexible tools is that individuals can obtain optimized, high quality digital images in complete privacy at home. The review of the images for changes is greatly simplified by the DermAlert® software so that the entire process can be carried out with maximum privacy and allows the individual to have complete control over how often they want to check for changes.

The DermAlert® software maintains a log of any changes that the user notes. Images can be printed to show to a physician, or the whole data set can be taken on a CD to demonstrate changes to a physician.

Interesting.  This software inspired me to write a new blog post, to the tune of Rod Stewart's "Every Picture Tells A Story"...

All in fun.  Best wishes to you and your wife.

No problem, The only tumor/spot I have had after diagnosis we could just photograph with a millimetr ruler next to it to keep a check.  My wife has so many moles and keeps mentioniing some  of them ithing and seeming to change, but has not been willing to see a dermatoligist in spite of my repeated bugging of her for 4 years!

When the map files are treated as image or document files, maybe we can refer to a certain third party image sdk to deal with the image scaling and image loading.
