Self-Supervised Learning for Few-Shot Medical Image Segmentation

This work proposes a novel self-supervised FSS framework for medical images, named SSL-ALPNet, in order to bypass the requirement for annotations during training, and exploits superpixel-based pseudo-labels to provide supervision signals.

PoissonSeg: Semi-Supervised Few-Shot Medical Image Segmentation via Poisson Learning

A novel semi-supervised FSS framework for medical image segmentation that employs Poisson learning for modeling data relationship and propagating supervision signals, and Spatial Consistency Calibration for encouraging the model to learn more coherent representations is proposed.

Robust Prototypical Few-Shot Organ Segmentation with Regularized Neural-ODEs

Regularized Prototypical Neural Ordinary Differential Equation (R-PNODE), a method that leverages intrinsic properties of Neural-ODEs, assisted and enhanced by additional cluster and consistency losses to perform Few-Shot Segmentation (FSS) of organs, is proposed.

Q-Net: Query-Informed Few-Shot Medical Image Segmentation

Q-Net is proposed, a Query-informed Meta-FSS approach, which mimics in spirit the learning mechanism of an expert clinician and achieves state-of-the-art performance on two widely used datasets, which are composed of abdominal MR images and cardiac MR images, respectively.

Efficient contour-based annotation by iterative deep learning for organ segmentation from volumetric medical images

A contour-based annotation by iterative deep learning (AID) algorithm which uses boundary representation instead of voxel labels to incorporate high-level organ shape knowledge and is more efficient, more accurate and less prone to inter-operator variability than the SOTA AID methods for organ segmentation from volumetric medical images.
