Intelligent image synthesis to attack a segmentation CNN using adversarial learning

no code implementations24 Sep 2019 Liang Chen, Paul Bentley, Kensaku MORI, Kazunari Misawa, Michitaka Fujiwara, Daniel Rueckert

Our approach has three key features: 1) The generated adversarial examples exhibit anatomical variations (in form of deformations) as well as appearance perturbations; 2) The adversarial examples attack segmentation models so that the Dice scores decrease by a pre-specified amount; 3) The attack is not required to be specified beforehand.

An application of cascaded 3D fully convolutional networks for medical image segmentation

1 code implementation14 Mar 2018 Holger R. Roth, Hirohisa ODA, Xiangrong Zhou, Natsuki Shimizu, Ying Yang, Yuichiro Hayashi, Masahiro Oda, Michitaka Fujiwara, Kazunari Misawa, Kensaku MORI

In this work, we show that a multi-class 3D FCN trained on manually labeled CT scans of several anatomical structures (ranging from the large organs to thin vessels) can achieve competitive segmentation results, while avoiding the need for handcrafting features or training class-specific models.

Towards dense volumetric pancreas segmentation in CT using 3D fully convolutional networks

no code implementations17 Nov 2017 Holger Roth, Masahiro Oda, Natsuki Shimizu, Hirohisa ODA, Yuichiro Hayashi, Takayuki Kitasaka, Michitaka Fujiwara, Kazunari Misawa, Kensaku MORI

Pancreas segmentation in computed tomography imaging has been historically difficult for automated methods because of the large shape and size variations between patients.

Employing Weak Annotations for Medical Image Analysis Problems

no code implementations21 Aug 2017 Martin Rajchl, Lisa M. Koch, Christian Ledig, Jonathan Passerat-Palmbach, Kazunari Misawa, Kensaku MORI, Daniel Rueckert

To efficiently establish training databases for machine learning methods, collaborative and crowdsourcing platforms have been investigated to collectively tackle the annotation effort.

Hierarchical 3D fully convolutional networks for multi-organ segmentation

1 code implementation21 Apr 2017 Holger R. Roth, Hirohisa ODA, Yuichiro Hayashi, Masahiro Oda, Natsuki Shimizu, Michitaka Fujiwara, Kazunari Misawa, Kensaku MORI

In this work, we show that a multi-class 3D FCN trained on manually labeled CT scans of seven abdominal structures (artery, vein, liver, spleen, stomach, gallbladder, and pancreas) can achieve competitive segmentation results, while avoiding the need for handcrafting features or training organ-specific models.
