Using CT Images from the MICCAI 2015 — Head and Neck Auto Segmentation challenge

Photo by on

Radiotherapy is now a common approach to treat cancers in the Head-and-Neck (HaN) region. To ensure that healthy organs are exposed to a minimal amount of tumor-killing radiation, it is required to segment them. Automated segmentation of such organs is required since there exists inter-annotator (i.e. between radiation oncologists) variations…

This post is the second in a series on writing efficient training code in Tensorflow 2.x for 3D medical image segmentation. , we saw how one can extract sub-volumes from 3D CT volumes using the API. Here, the focus is on writing custom training loops with a specific focus…

An understanding of open data sets for urban semantic segmentation shall help one understand how to proceed while training models for self-driving cars.

Myriad efforts have been made over the last 10 years in algorithmic improvements and dataset creation for semantic segmentation tasks. Of late, there have been rapid gains in this field, a subset of visual scene understanding, due mainly to contributions by deep learning methodologies. But deep…
