  journal={arXiv: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition},
Pseudo-healthy synthesis is defined as synthesizing a subject-specific 'healthy' image from a pathological one, with applications ranging from segmentation to anomaly detection. In recent years, the existing GAN-based methods proposed for pseudo-healthy synthesis aim to eliminate the global differences between synthetic and healthy images. In this paper, we discuss the problems of these approaches, which are the style transfer and artifacts respectively. To address these problems, we consider… Expand

An Adversarial Learning Approach to Medical Image Synthesis for Lesion Detection
This work proposes a medical image synthesis model named abnormal-to-normal translation generative adversarial network (ANT-GAN) to generate a normal-looking medical image based on its abnormal-looking counterpart without the need for paired training data. Expand
Translating and Segmenting Multimodal Medical Volumes with Cycle- and Shape-Consistency Generative Adversarial Network
This work proposes a generic cross-modality synthesis approach and shows that these goals can be achieved with an end-to-end 3D convolutional neural network (CNN) composed of mutually-beneficial generators and segmentors for image synthesis and segmentation tasks. Expand
Image-to-Image Translation with Conditional Adversarial Networks
Conditional adversarial networks are investigated as a general-purpose solution to image-to-image translation problems and it is demonstrated that this approach is effective at synthesizing photos from label maps, reconstructing objects from edge maps, and colorizing images, among other tasks.

High Tissue Contrast MRI Synthesis Using Multi-Stage Attention-GAN for Glioma Segmentation
The experiments over three competitive segmentation baselines on BraTS 2018 dataset indicate that incorporating the synthetic HTC images in the multi-modal segmentation framework improves the average Dice scores 0.8%, 0.6%, and 0.5% on the whole tumor, tumor core, and enhancing tumor, respectively, while eliminating one real MRI sequence from the segmentation procedure.

Visual Feature Attribution Using Wasserstein GANs
This paper develops a novel feature attribution technique based on Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Networks (WGAN), which performs substantially better than the state-of-the-art for visual attribution on a synthetic dataset and on real 3D neuroimaging data from patients with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.

f‐AnoGAN: Fast unsupervised anomaly detection with generative adversarial networks
Fast AnoGAN (f‐AnoGAN), a generative adversarial network (GAN) based unsupervised learning approach capable of identifying anomalous images and image segments, that can serve as imaging biomarker candidates is presented. Expand
Pseudo-healthy Image Synthesis for White Matter Lesion Segmentation
White matter hyperintensities (WMH) seen on FLAIR images are established as a key indicator of Vascular Dementia (VD) and other pathologies. We propose a novel modality transformation technique toExpand
Pathology Segmentation using Distributional Differences to Images of Healthy Origin
This work presents a method to automatically segment and model pathologies in medical images, trained solely on data labelled on the image level as either healthy or containing a visual defect, based on CycleGAN, an image-to-image translation technique to translate images between the domains of healthy and pathological images.

Unsupervised Detection of Lesions in Brain MRI using constrained adversarial auto-encoders
This work uses the Human Connectome Project dataset to learn distribution of healthy-appearing brain MRI and proposes a simple yet effective constraint that helps mapping of an image bearing lesion close to its corresponding healthy image in the latent space. Expand
