An adaptive anisotropic filtering algorithm is proposed to enhance skin line pattern in normal white light clinical skin images for skin cancer detection. Local orientation and coherence of skin line are used to measure the quality of skin line pattern image. The resulted skin line pattern after the filtering shows the increase of local line coherence and the enhancement of skin line pattern.
