We present a deep convolutional neural network for breast cancer screening exam classification, trained and evaluated on over 200, 000 exams (over 1, 000, 000 images).
We also demonstrate that a whole image classifier trained using our end-to-end approach on the DDSM digitized film mammograms can be transferred to INbreast FFDM images using only a subset of the INbreast data for fine-tuning and without further reliance on the availability of lesion annotations.
In this work, we develop the computational approach based on deep convolution neural networks for breast cancer histology image classification.
In our work, we propose to use a multi-view deep convolutional neural network that handles a set of high-resolution medical images.
The hyper-parameters used for all the classifiers were manually assigned.
Explanations for deep neural network predictions in terms of domain-related concepts can be valuable in medical applications, where justifications are important for confidence in the decision-making.
