BAPGAN: GAN-based Bone Age Progression of Femur and Phalange X-ray Images

  title={BAPGAN: GAN-based Bone Age Progression of Femur and Phalange X-ray Images},
  author={Shinji Nakazawa and Changhee Han and Joe Hasei and Ryuichi Nakahara and Toshifumi Ozaki},
Convolutional Neural Networks play a key role in bone age assessment for investigating endocrinology, genetic, and growth disorders under various modalities and body regions. However, no researcher has tackled bone age progression/regression despite its valuable potential applications: bonerelated disease diagnosis, clinical knowledge acquisition, and museum education. Therefore, we propose Bone Age Progression Generative Adversarial Network (BAPGAN) to progress/regress both femur/phalange X…

Deep learning for automated skeletal bone age assessment in X‐ray images
This paper proposes and test several deep learning approaches to assess skeletal bone age automatically and shows an average discrepancy between manual and automatic evaluation of about 0.8 years, which is state‐of‐the‐art performance.
Automated Age Estimation from Hand MRI Volumes Using Deep Learning
This work proposes the use of deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) for automatic BA estimation from hand MRI volumes, inspired by the way radiologists visually perform age estimation using established staging schemes that follow physical maturation.
Bone age assessment with various machine learning techniques: A systematic literature review and meta-analysis
The goal of this paper is to present the state of the art evidence, trends and gaps in the research related to bone age assessment studies that make use of Machine Learning techniques.
GAN-based synthetic brain MR image generation
This novel realistic medical image generation approach shows that GANs can generate 128 χ 128 brain MR images avoiding artifacts, and even an expert physician was unable to accurately distinguish the synthetic images from the real samples in the Visual Turing Test.
The RSNA Pediatric Bone Age Machine Learning Challenge.
The RSNA Pediatric Bone Age Machine Learning Challenge showed how a coordinated approach to solving a medical imaging problem can be successfully conducted and will catalyze collaboration and development of ML tools and methods that can potentially improve diagnostic accuracy and patient care.
Ea-GANs: Edge-Aware Generative Adversarial Networks for Cross-Modality MR Image Synthesis
The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed edge-aware generative adversarial networks (Ea-GANs) outperform multiple state-of-the-art methods for cross-modality MR image synthesis in both qualitative and quantitative measures.
Combining Noise-to-Image and Image-to-Image GANs: Brain MR Image Augmentation for Tumor Detection
This work thoroughly investigates CNN-based tumor classification results and proposes a two-step GAN-based DA that can significantly outperform the classic DA alone, in tumor detection and also in other medical imaging tasks.
Assessment of Skeletal Maturity and Prediction of Adult Height (TW2 Method)
This book describes the Tanner-Whitehouse (TW) approach to bone age determination and presents the new TW2 standards and presents separate standards for boys and girls that recognize systematic differences between the sexes and the fact that girls are not simply more mature boys.

A conditional adversarial autoencoder that learns a face manifold, traversing on which smooth age progression and regression can be realized simultaneously is proposed, and the appealing performance and flexibility of the proposed framework is demonstrated by comparing with the state-of-the-art and ground truth.
An evaluation of statistical models for age estimation and the assessment of the 18-year threshold using conventional pelvic radiographs.
It is demonstrated that the present models may be helpful for age estimation and the determination of the 18-year threshold, however, owing to the high effective dose of ionizing radiation used during conventional radiography of the pelvis, it is expected that these models will be tested with pelvic MRI forAge estimation.
