Feature reassembly is an essential component in modern CNN-based segmentation approaches, which includes feature downsampling and upsampling operators. Existing operators reassemble multiple features from a small predefined region into one for each target location independently. This may result in loss of spatial information, which could vanish activations caused by tiny lesions particularly when they cluster together. In this paper, we propose a many-to-many reassembly of features (M2MRF). It…

UNet++: Redesigning Skip Connections to Exploit Multiscale Features in Image Segmentation
TLDR
UNet++ is proposed, a new neural architecture for semantic and instance segmentation by alleviating the unknown network depth with an efficient ensemble of U-Nets of varying depths and redesigning skip connections to aggregate features of varying semantic scales at the decoder sub-networks, leading to a highly flexible feature fusion scheme.
U-Net: Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation
TLDR
It is shown that such a network can be trained end-to-end from very few images and outperforms the prior best method (a sliding-window convolutional network) on the ISBI challenge for segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopic stacks.
CARAFE: Content-Aware ReAssembly of FEatures
TLDR
