Radiation therapy has emerged as one of the preferred techniques to treat brain cancer patients. During treatment, a very high dose of radiation is delivered to a very narrow area. Prescribed radiation therapy for brain cancer requires precisely defining the target treatment area, as well as delineating vital brain structures which must be spared from radiotoxicity. Nevertheless, delineation task is usually still manually performed, which is inefficient and operator-dependent. Several attempts…

Fully automated brain resection cavity delineation for radiation target volume definition in glioblastoma patients using deep learning

TLDR
The proposed DL approach yields promising results for automated RC segmentation in glioblastoma multiforme patients using deep learning (DL) technologies and the DC are still subpar compared to human experts.

A recursive ensemble organ segmentation (REOS) framework: application in brain radiotherapy

TLDR
The developed REOS framework for accurate organs-at-risk (OARs) automatic segmentation is applied for brain radiotherapy on segmenting six OARs including the eyes, the brainstem, the optical nerves and the chiasm, and satisfactory performances demonstrated the effectiveness of the REOS in O ARs segmentation.

Automatic segmentation of the clinical target volume and organs at risk in the planning CT for rectal cancer using deep dilated convolutional neural networks

It is suggested that DDCNN can be used to segment the CTV and OARs accurately and efficiently and could improve the consistency of contouring and streamline radiotherapy workflows.

Survey on deep learning for radiotherapy

Enhancing the Image Quality via Transferred Deep Residual Learning of Coarse PET Sinograms

TLDR
This paper developed a data-driven, single-image super-resolution (SISR) method for sinograms, based on the novel deep residual convolutional neural network (CNN), which potentially finds its application in designing low-cost high-performance PET systems.

Two Parallel Stages Deep Learning Network for Anterior Visual Pathway Segmentation

TLDR
Fractional anisotropy images are introduced into the training data set and a deep learning network with two parallel stages for AVP segmentation is proposed and it is demonstrated that the proposed framework consistently improves the accuracy of AVP segmentsation.

Spatial Probabilistic Distribution Map Based 3D FCN for Visual Pathway Segmentation

TLDR
This study proposed a novel method based on 3D fully convolutional network (FCN) combined with a spatial probabilistic distribution map (SPDM) for visual pathway segmentation in magnetic resonance imaging that overcame the problem of low contrast and blurry boundary and achieved better segmentation performance.

Statistical Insights into DNN Learning in Subspace Classification

TLDR
The results provide an important complement to the common belief of representational learning, suggesting that at least in some model settings, although the performance of DNN is comparable to the ideal two-step procedure knowing the true latent cluster information a priori, it does not really do clustering in any of its layers.
