BoMD: Bag of Multi-label Descriptors for Noisy Chest X-ray Classification

  title={BoMD: Bag of Multi-label Descriptors for Noisy Chest X-ray Classification},
  author={Yuanhong Chen and Fengbei Liu and Hu Wang and Chongjian Wang and Yu Tian and Yuyuan Liu and G. Carneiro},
Deep learning methods have shown outstanding classification accuracy in medical imaging problems, which is largely attributed to the availability of large-scale datasets manually annotated with clean labels. However, given the high cost of such manual annotation, new medical imaging classification problems may need to rely on machine-generated noisy labels extracted from radiology reports. Indeed, many Chest X-ray (CXR) classifiers have already been modelled from datasets with noisy labels, but…

CheXpert: A Large Chest Radiograph Dataset with Uncertainty Labels and Expert Comparison

A labeler is designed to automatically detect the presence of 14 observations in radiology reports, capturing uncertainties inherent in radiograph interpretation, in CheXpert, a large dataset that contains 224,316 chest radiographs of 65,240 patients.

Robust Medical Image Classification From Noisy Labeled Data With Global and Local Representation Guided Co-Training

This paper proposes a novel collaborative training paradigm with global and local representation learning for robust medical image classification from noisy-labeled data to combat the lack of high quality annotated medical data.

Multi-label Thoracic Disease Image Classification with Cross-Attention Networks

A novel scheme of Cross-Attention Networks (CAN) is proposed for automated thoracic disease classification from chest x-ray images, which can effectively excavate more meaningful representation from data to boost the performance through cross-attention by only image-level annotations.

NVUM: Non-volatile Unbiased Memory for Robust Medical Image Classification

A new training module called Non-Volatile Unbiased Memory (NVUM), which non-volatility stores running average of model logits for a new regularization loss on noisy multi-label problem, which outperforms previous state-of-the-art CXR classifiers and previous methods that can deal with noisy labels on all evaluations.

Learning with Neighbor Consistency for Noisy Labels

This work presents a method for learning from noisy labels that leverages similarities between training examples in feature space, encouraging the prediction of each example to be similar to its nearest neighbours.

FINE Samples for Learning with Noisy Labels

A novel detector for filtering label noise that focuses on each data point’s latent representation dynamics and measure the alignment between the latent distribution and each representation using the eigen decomposition of the data gram matrix, providing a robust detector using derivative-free simple methods with theoretical guarantees.

CheXNet: Radiologist-Level Pneumonia Detection on Chest X-Rays with Deep Learning

An algorithm that can detect pneumonia from chest X-rays at a level exceeding practicing radiologists is developed, and it is found that CheXNet exceeds average radiologist performance on the F1 metric.

DivideMix: Learning with Noisy Labels as Semi-supervised Learning

This work proposes DivideMix, a novel framework for learning with noisy labels by leveraging semi-supervised learning techniques, which models the per-sample loss distribution with a mixture model to dynamically divide the training data into a labeled set with clean samples and an unlabeled set with noisy samples.

Region Proposals for Saliency Map Refinement for Weakly-supervised Disease Localisation and Classification

This paper introduces a new model that combines region proposal and saliency detection to overcome both limitations for weakly supervised disease classification and localisation and establishes the new state-of-the-art forWeakly-supervised disease diagnosis andLocalisation.
