The nucleus of white blood cells (WBCs) plays a significant role in their detection and classification. Appropriate feature extraction of the nucleus is necessary to fit a suitable artificial intelligence model to classify WBCs. Therefore, designing a method is needed to segment the nucleus accurately. There should be a comparison between the ground truths distinguished by a hematologist and the detected nuclei to evaluate the performance of the nucleus segmentation method accurately. It is a… Expand

Attention U-Net: Learning Where to Look for the Pancreas
TLDR
A novel attention gate (AG) model for medical imaging that automatically learns to focus on target structures of varying shapes and sizes is proposed to eliminate the necessity of using explicit external tissue/organ localisation modules of cascaded convolutional neural networks (CNNs). Expand
UNet++: A Nested U-Net Architecture for Medical Image Segmentation
TLDR
This paper presents UNet++, a new, more powerful architecture for medical image segmentation where the encoder and decoder sub-networks are connected through a series of nested, dense skip pathways, and argues that the optimizer would deal with an easier learning task when the feature maps from the decoder and encoder networks are semantically similar.
