Objective assessment of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans of osteoarthritis (OA) can address the limitation of the current OA assessment. Segmentation of bone, cartilage, and joint fluid is necessary for the OA objective assessment. Most of the proposed segmentation methods are not performing instance segmentation and suffer from class imbalance problems. This study deployed Mask R-CNN instance segmentation and improved it (improved-Mask R-CNN (iMaskRCNN)) to obtain a more accurate… Expand

Deep Feature Learning for Knee Cartilage Segmentation Using a Triplanar Convolutional Neural Network
A novel system for voxel classification integrating three 2D CNNs, which have a one-to-one association with the xy, yz and zx planes of 3D image, respectively, which performs better than a state-of-the-art method using 3D multi-scale features. Expand
Evolution of semi-quantitative whole joint assessment of knee OA: MOAKS (MRI Osteoarthritis Knee Score).
The iteratively developed magnetic resonance imaging Osteoarthritis Knee Score shows very good to excellent reliability for the large majority of features assessed and further iterative development and research will include assessment of its validation and responsiveness. Expand
Whole-Organ Magnetic Resonance Imaging Score (WORMS) of the knee in osteoarthritis.
The WORMS method provides multi-feature, whole-organ assessment of the knee in OA using conventional MR images, and shows high inter-observer agreement among trained readers, and may be useful in epidemiological studies and clinical trials of OA. Expand
