Fetal Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used in prenatal diagnosis and to assess early brain development.
This work presents a novel protocol for fast secure inference of neural networks applied to computer vision applications.
Following the isosurface extraction step, two CortexODE models are trained to deform the initial surface to white matter and pial surfaces respectively.
The robustness of federated learning (FL) is vital for the distributed training of an accurate global model that is shared among large number of clients.
Traditional cortical surface reconstruction is time consuming and limited by the resolution of brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

This mismatch is known as sampling bias.
In this work, we implement and evaluate different robust aggregation methods in FL applied to healthcare data.

We developed an automated system based on deep neural networks for fast and sensitive 3D image segmentation of cortical gray matter from fetal brain MRI.
Real-world settings often do not allow acquisition of high-resolution volumetric images for accurate morphological assessment and diagnostic.
We compare our approach with state-of-the-art architectures and achieve significantly better accuracy by reducing the detection error by 50%, while requiring fewer computational resources and time to train compared to the naive approach of training K agents separately.

We propose a new Iterative Transformation Network (ITN) for the automatic detection of standard planes in 3D volumes.

PIN is computationally efficient since the inference stage only selectively samples a small number of patches in an iterative fashion rather than a dense sampling at every location in the volume.

Navigating through target anatomy to find the required view plane is tedious and operator-dependent.
In this paper, we propose a general Riemannian formulation of the pose estimation problem.
We extensively evaluate the effectiveness of our approach quantitatively on simulated Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), fetal brain imagery with synthetic motion and further demonstrate qualitative results on real fetal MRI data where our method is integrated into a full reconstruction and motion compensation pipeline.
Our approach is attractive in challenging imaging scenarios, where significant subject motion complicates reconstruction performance of 3D volumes from 2D slice data.
Fast imaging is required for targets that move to avoid motion artefacts.

The availability of training data for supervision is a frequently encountered bottleneck of medical image analysis methods.
