Deep learning had already demonstrated its power in medical images, including denoising, classification, segmentation, etc. All these applications are proposed to automatically analyze medical images beforehand, which brings more information to radiologists during clinical assessment for accuracy improvement. Recently, many medical denoising methods had shown their significant artifact reduction result and noise removal both quantitatively and qualitatively. However, those existing methods are… 

Ct Image Denoising With Encoder-Decoder Based Graph Convolutional Networks

This paper proposes an encoder-decoder-based graph convolutional network (ED-GCN) for CT image denoising that combines local convolutions and graph convolutions to process both local and non-local features.



Connecting Image Denoising and High-Level Vision Tasks via Deep Learning

A convolutional neural network in which convolutions are conducted in various spatial resolutions via downsampling and upsampling operations in order to fuse and exploit contextual information on different scales and the benefit of exploiting image semantics simultaneously for image denoising and high-level vision tasks via deep learning is demonstrated.

Zero-Shot Medical Image Artifact Reduction

This paper introduces a “Zero-Shot” medical image Artifact Reduction (ZSAR) framework, which leverages the power of deep learning but without using general pre-trained networks or any clean image reference, and is the first deep learning framework that reduces artifacts in medical images without using a priori training set.

Low-Dose CT With a Residual Encoder-Decoder Convolutional Neural Network

This work combines the autoencoder, deconvolution network, and shortcut connections into the residual encoder–decoder convolutional neural network (RED-CNN) for low-dose CT imaging and achieves a competitive performance relative to the-state-of-art methods in both simulated and clinical cases.

Uncertainty-Aware Training of Neural Networks for Selective Medical Image Segmentation

A novel method is presented that considers such uncertainty in the training process to maximize the accuracy on the confident subset rather than the Accuracy on the whole dataset.

Data Augmentation Using Learned Transformations for One-Shot Medical Image Segmentation

This work learns a model of transformations from the images, and uses the model along with the labeled example to synthesize additional labeled examples, enabling the synthesis of complex effects such as variations in anatomy and image acquisition procedures.

A Segmentation-aware Deep Fusion Network for Compressed Sensing MRI

A novel approach to guide the low-level visual task using the information from mid- or high-level task with the help of a segmentation-aware deep fusion network called SADFN for compressed sensing MRI.

ICA-UNet: ICA Inspired Statistical UNet for Real-time 3D Cardiac Cine MRI Segmentation

Experiments show that, compared with the state-of-the-arts, ICA-UNet not only achieves higher Dice scores, but also meets the real-time requirements for both throughput and latency (up to 12.6\(\times \) reduction), enabling real- time guidance for cardiac interventions without visual lag.
