Abnormal iron accumulation in the brain subcortical nuclei has been reported to be correlated to various neurodegenerative diseases, which can be measured through the magnetic susceptibility from the quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM). To quantitively measure the magnetic susceptibility, the nuclei should be accurately segmented, which is a tedious task for clinicians. In this paper, we proposed a double-branch residual-structured U-Net (DB-ResUNet) based on 3D convolutional neural… 


Automatic Segmentation of the Caudate Nucleus From Human Brain MR Images
The algorithm has been incorporated into a public domain software program written in Java and has the potential to be of broad benefit to neuroimaging investigators interested in basal ganglia anatomy and function.
Automatic Segmentation of Acute Ischemic Stroke From DWI Using 3-D Fully Convolutional DenseNets
A novel automatic method to segment acute ischemic stroke from diffusion weighted images (DWIs) using deep 3-D convolutional neural networks (CNNs) that is fast and accurate, demonstrating a good potential in clinical routines.
A fully-automatic caudate nucleus segmentation of brain MRI: Application in volumetric analysis of pediatric attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
CaudateCut generates segmentation results that are comparable to gold-standard segmentations and which are reliable in the analysis of differentiating neuroanatomical abnormalities between healthy controls and pediatric ADHD.
The Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS)
The set-up and results of the Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS) organized in conjunction with the MICCAI 2012 and 2013 conferences are reported, finding that different algorithms worked best for different sub-regions, but that no single algorithm ranked in the top for all sub-Regions simultaneously.
DeepMedic for Brain Tumor Segmentation
DeepMedic, a 3D CNN architecture previously presented for lesion segmentation, is employed, which is further improved by adding residual connections, aiming to shed some light on requirements for employing such a system.
Brain Tumor Segmentation Based on 3D Unet with Multi-Class Focal Loss
A multi-class focal loss is proposed to make the loss function emphasis on bad-classified voxels in MR images to significantly improve labeling and segmentation accuracy as compared to other loss layers.
