With the development of radiomics, noninvasive diagnosis like ultrasound (US) imaging plays a very important role in automatic liver fibrosis diagnosis (ALFD). Due to the noisy data, expensive annotations of US images, the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) assisting approaches encounters a bottleneck. Besides, the use of single-modal US data limits the further improve of the classification results. In this work, we innovatively propose a multi-modal fusion network with active learning…

USCL: Pretraining Deep Ultrasound Image Diagnosis Model Through Video Contrastive Representation Learning

An US semi-supervised contrastive learning method, named USCL, that achieves fine-tuning accuracy of over 94% on POCUS dataset, which is 10% higher than 84% of the ImageNet pretrained model.

HiCo: Hierarchical Contrastive Learning for Ultrasound Video Model Pretraining

A hierarchical contrastive learning (HiCo) method to improve the transferability for the US video model pretraining, which introduces both peer-level semantic alignment and cross- level semantic alignment to facilitate the interaction between different semantic levels, leading to better generalization and adaptation of the learned model.
