Ultrasound as a well-established imaging modality is widely used in imaging lymph nodes for clinical diagnosis and disease analysis. Quantitative analysis of lymph node features, morphology, and relations can provide valuable information for diagnosis and immune system studies. For such analysis, it is necessary to first accurately segment the lymph node areas in ultrasound images. In this paper, we develop a new deep learning method, called Coarse-to-Fine Stacked Fully Convolutional Nets (CFS… CONTINUE READING
