Three monochromatic spectral images have been extracted from a single RGB image data set at simultaneous illumination of skin by 473nm, 532nm and 609nm spectral lines. They were further transformed into distribution maps of three skin chromophores - melanin, oxy-hemoglobin and deoxy-hemoglobin, related to pigmented and vascular skin malformations. Performance and clinical potential of the proposed 3×3 technique is discussed.
