The International Skin Imaging Collaboration (ISIC) is an academia and industry partnership designed to facilitate the application of digital skin imaging to diagnose melanoma. ISIC has partnered with the International Dermoscopy Society (IDS) to support dermoscopedia and the ISIC Archive is the repository of images for dermoscopedia. The ISIC Archive is an expanding open source public access archive of skin images for teaching and for the development and testing of automated diagnostic systems. ISIC is also developing proposed standards to address the technologies, techniques, and terminology used in skin imaging with special attention to the issues of privacy and interoperability (i.e., the ability to share images across technology and clinical platforms). You can access the ISIC and ISIC Archive home pages from the menu at the top of dermoscopedia. We encourage you to become involved in ISIC.
