Increasing demand for high field magnetic resonance (MR) scanner indicates the need for high-quality MR images for accurate medical diagnosis. However, cost constraints, instead, motivate a need for algorithms to enhance images from low field scanners. We propose an approach to process the given low field (3T) MR image slices to reconstruct the corresponding high field (7T-like) slices. Our framework involves a novel architecture of a merged convolutional autoencoder with a single encoder and… Expand

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.
