Overall KiTS21 facilitated a significant advancement in the state of the art in kidney tumor segmentation, and provides useful insights that are applicable to the field of semantic segmentation as a whole.
Accordingly, the 3D region discrimination loss is firstly proposed to learn the discriminative representation measuring voxel-wise similarities and cluster semantically consistent voxels to form the candidate 3D vascular segmentation in unlabeled images; secondly, based on the similarity of the tree-shaped morphology between 2D and 3D vessels, the Crop-and-Overlap strategy is presented to generate reference masks from 2D structure-agnostic vessel annotations, which are fit for varied vascular structures, and the adversarial loss is introduced to guide the tree-shaped morphology of 3D vessels; thirdly, the temporal consistency loss is proposed to foster the training stability and keep the model updated smoothly.
To address this challenge, in this paper, we propose a general unsupervised representation learning framework, named local discrimination (LD), to learn local discriminative features for medical images by closely embedding semantically similar pixels and identifying regions of similar structures across different images.
However, the commonly applied supervised representation learning methods require a large amount of annotated data, and unsupervised discriminative representation learning distinguishes different images by learning a global feature, both of which are not suitable for localized medical image analysis tasks.
In this paper, we present an end-to-end multitask learning (MTL) framework (COVID-MTL) that is capable of automated and simultaneous detection (against both radiology and NAT) and severity assessment of COVID-19.
Therefore, a multi-modality MRI fusion network (MMFNet) based on three modalities of MRI (T1, T2 and contrast-enhanced T1) is proposed to complete accurate segmentation of NPC.
