In this paper, we study the use of the Contour Dice loss for both problems and compare it to other boundary losses and to the combined Dice and Cross-Entropy loss.
We tested the method with the popular soft Dice loss for the fetal body segmentation task in two MRI sequences, TRUFI and FIESTA, and compared full annotation regime to partial annotations with a similar annotation effort.

It consists of two steps: 1) model-based semi-automatic fetal fat segmentations, reviewed and corrected by a radiologist; 2) automatic fetal fat segmentation using DL networks trained on the resulting annotated dataset.
Comparison and cross-validation of three different biometric measurements on two independent datasets shows that BiometryNet is robust and yields accurate measurements whose errors are lower than the clinically permissible errors, outperforming other existing automated biometry estimation methods.

Automatic segmentation of the developing fetal brain is a vital step in the quantitative analysis of prenatal neurodevelopment both in the research and clinical context.
Fetal MRI is increasingly used for fetal brain assessment.
Methods: The proposed approach utilizes the possible similarity of the repeated scans in longitudinal MRI studies.
