Imbalanced Classification in Medical Imaging via Regrouping

21 Oct 2022  ·  Le Peng, Yash Travadi, Rui Zhang, Ying Cui, Ju Sun ·

We propose performing imbalanced classification by regrouping majority classes into small classes so that we turn the problem into balanced multiclass classification. This new idea is dramatically different from popular loss reweighting and class resampling methods. Our preliminary result on imbalanced medical image classification shows that this natural idea can substantially boost the classification performance as measured by average precision (approximately area-under-the-precision-recall-curve, or AUPRC), which is more appropriate for evaluating imbalanced classification than other metrics such as balanced accuracy.
