Knowledge-Guided Multiview Deep Curriculum Learning for Elbow Fracture Classification

  title={Knowledge-Guided Multiview Deep Curriculum Learning for Elbow Fracture Classification},
  author={Jun Luo and Gene Kitamura and Dooman Arefan and Emine Doganay and Ashok Panigrahy and Shandong Wu},
Elbow fracture diagnosis often requires patients to take both frontal and lateral views of elbow X-ray radiographs. In this paper, we propose a multiview deep learning method for an elbow fracture subtype classification task. Our strategy leverages transfer learning by first training two single-view models, one for frontal view and the other for lateral view, and then transferring the weights to the corresponding layers in the proposed multiview network architecture. Meanwhile, quantitative…

Medical knowledge-guided deep curriculum learning for elbow fracture diagnosis from x-ray images
This work proposes a novel deep learning method to diagnose elbow fracture from elbow X-ray images by integrating domain-specific medical knowledge into a curriculum learning framework and proposes an algorithm that updates the sampling probabilities at each epoch, applicable to other sampling-based curriculum learning frameworks.
Medical-based Deep Curriculum Learning for Improved Fracture Classification
This work proposes and compares several strategies relying on curriculum learning, to support the classification of proximal femur fracture from X-ray images, a challenging problem as reflected by existing intra- and inter-expert disagreement.
Binomial Classification of Pediatric Elbow Fractures Using a Deep Learning Multiview Approach Emulating Radiologist Decision Making.
Deep learning can effectively classify acute and nonacute pediatric elbow abnormalities on radiographs in the setting of trauma and identify fractures in pediatric patients with variable skeletal immaturity.
Automatic Hip Fracture Identification and Functional Subclassification with Deep Learning
