  author={Khushboo Mehra and Hassan H. Soliman and Soumya Ranjan Sahoo},
Medical image classification is one of the most critical problems in the image recognition area. One of the major challenges in this field is the scarcity of labelled training data. Additionally, there is often class imbalance in datasets as some cases are very rare to happen. As a result, accuracy in classification task is normally low. Deep Learning models, in particular, show promising results on image segmentation and classification problems, but they require very large datasets for training… 



V-Net: Fully Convolutional Neural Networks for Volumetric Medical Image Segmentation

This work proposes an approach to 3D image segmentation based on a volumetric, fully convolutional, neural network, trained end-to-end on MRI volumes depicting prostate, and learns to predict segmentation for the whole volume at once.

Medical Image Synthesis for Data Augmentation and Anonymization using Generative Adversarial Networks

This work proposes a method to generate synthetic abnormal MRI images with brain tumors by training a generative adversarial network using two publicly available data sets of brain MRI, and demonstrates the value of generative models as an anonymization tool.

Feature Generating Networks for Zero-Shot Learning

A novel generative adversarial network (GAN) that synthesizes CNN features conditioned on class-level semantic information, offering a shortcut directly from a semantic descriptor of a class to a class-conditional feature distribution.

Brain Tumor Type Classification via Capsule Networks

The proposed approach can successfully overcome CNNs for the brain tumor classification problem and investigates the over-fitting problem of CapsNets based on a real set of MRI images.

Conditional Image Synthesis with Auxiliary Classifier GANs

A variant of GANs employing label conditioning that results in 128 x 128 resolution image samples exhibiting global coherence is constructed and it is demonstrated that high resolution samples provide class information not present in low resolution samples.

Automatic Brain Tumor Detection and Segmentation Using U-Net Based Fully Convolutional Networks

This study proposes a fully automatic method for brain tumor segmentation, which is developed using U-Net based deep convolutional networks, which was evaluated on Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation (BRATS 2015) datasets, showing that it can obtain promising segmentation efficiently.

Invited Talk: U-Net Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation
