Adaptable image quality assessment using meta-reinforcement learning of task amenability

1 code implementation31 Jul 2021 Shaheer U. Saeed, Yunguan Fu, Vasilis Stavrinides, Zachary M. C. Baum, Qianye Yang, Mirabela Rusu, Richard E. Fan, Geoffrey A. Sonn, J. Alison Noble, Dean C. Barratt, Yipeng Hu

Using 6644 clinical ultrasound images from 249 prostate cancer patients, our results for image classification and segmentation tasks show that the proposed IQA method can be adapted using data with as few as respective 19. 7% and 29. 6% expert-reviewed consensus labels and still achieve comparable IQA and task performance, which would otherwise require a training dataset with 100% expert labels.
