Thus, the METSC is composed with three stages, an embedding stage, a sparse representation stage, and a mapping stage.
Data augmentation is a widely used strategy that improves the training of CNNs, and the design of the augmentation method for brain lesion segmentation is still an open problem.
Usually, incomplete annotations can be achieved, where positive labeling results are carefully examined to ensure their reliability but there can be other positive instances, i. e., cells of interest, that are not included in the annotations.
The expensive manual delineation can be a particular disadvantage when novel WM tracts, i. e., tracts that have not been included in existing manual delineations, are to be analyzed.
The midline related pathological image features are crucial for evaluating the severity of brain compression caused by stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Then, the interpolated signals are used together with the high-quality tissue microstructure computed from the source dataset to train deep networks that perform tissue microstructure estimation for the target dataset.
Since unannotated data is generally abundant, it is desirable to use unannotated data to improve the segmentation performance for CNNs when limited annotated data is available.
The diffusion profile can be described by the ensemble average propagator (EAP), which is inferred from observed diffusion signals.
In this work we explore the use of a deep network for FO estimation in a dictionary-based framework and propose an algorithm named Fiber Orientation Reconstruction guided by a Deep Network (FORDN).
In this work, we propose a deep network based approach to the NODDI microstructure estimation, which is named Microstructure Estimation using a Deep Network (MEDN).
Data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) can be used to reconstruct fiber tracts, for example, in muscle and white matter.
