Dectecting Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with Semi-Supervised Conditional GANs

  title={Dectecting Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with Semi-Supervised Conditional GANs},
  author={Jeremiah W. Johnson},
Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) comprises nearly 80% of all breast cancers. The detection of IDC is a necessary preprocessing step in determining the aggressiveness of the cancer, determining treatment protocols, and predicting patient outcomes, and is usually performed manually by an expert pathologist. Here, we describe a novel algorithm for automatically detecting IDC using semi-supervised conditional generative adversarial networks (cGANs). The framework is simple and effective at improving… 

Imbalanced Breast Cancer Classification Using Transfer Learning

This paper proposes a framework based on the notion of transfer learning to address the issue of accurate breast cancer detection using automated algorithms and focuses its efforts on histopathological and imbalanced image classification.

Generative adversarial networks in medical imaging



Automatic detection of invasive ductal carcinoma in whole slide images with convolutional neural networks

The method yielded the best quantitative results for automatic detection of IDC regions in WSI in terms of F-measure and balanced accuracy and suggest that at least some of the tissue classification mistakes were less due to any fundamental problems associated with the approach, than the inherent limitations in obtaining a very highly granular annotation of the diseased area of interest by an expert pathologist.

Classification of breast cancer histology images using Convolutional Neural Networks

A method for the classification of hematoxylin and eosin stained breast biopsy images using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) is proposed and the sensitivity of the method for cancer cases is 95.6%.

Deep learning for digital pathology image analysis: A comprehensive tutorial with selected use cases

This paper investigates concepts through seven unique DP tasks as use cases to elucidate techniques needed to produce comparable, and in many cases, superior to results from the state-of-the-art hand-crafted feature-based classification approaches.

Structured Prediction using cGANs with Fusion Discriminator

We propose the fusion discriminator, a single unified framework for incorporating conditional information into a generative adversarial network (GAN) for a variety of distinct structured prediction

Conditional Generative Adversarial Nets

The conditional version of generative adversarial nets is introduced, which can be constructed by simply feeding the data, y, to the generator and discriminator, and it is shown that this model can generate MNIST digits conditioned on class labels.

Improved Techniques for Training GANs

This work focuses on two applications of GANs: semi-supervised learning, and the generation of images that humans find visually realistic, and presents ImageNet samples with unprecedented resolution and shows that the methods enable the model to learn recognizable features of ImageNet classes.

Spectral Normalization for Generative Adversarial Networks

This paper proposes a novel weight normalization technique called spectral normalization to stabilize the training of the discriminator and confirms that spectrally normalized GANs (SN-GANs) is capable of generating images of better or equal quality relative to the previous training stabilization techniques.

Unsupervised Representation Learning with Deep Convolutional Generative Adversarial Networks

This work introduces a class of CNNs called deep convolutional generative adversarial networks (DCGANs), that have certain architectural constraints, and demonstrates that they are a strong candidate for unsupervised learning.

cGANs with Projection Discriminator

With this modification, the quality of the class conditional image generation on ILSVRC2012 (ImageNet) 1000-class image dataset is significantly improved and the application to super-resolution was extended and succeeded in producing highly discriminative super- resolution images.

Breast cancer statistics

Breast cancer rates vary largely by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status (SES), and geographic region, and death rates are higher in African American women than in whites, despite their lower incidence rates.
