In recent years, segmentation methods based on deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have made state-ofthe-art achievements for many medical analysis tasks. However, most of these approaches improve performance by optimizing the structure or adding new functional modules of the U-Net, which ignoring the complementation and fusion of the coarse-grained and fine-grained semantic information. To solve the above problems, we propose a medical image segmentation framework called progressive…

DoubleU-Net: A Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Medical Image Segmentation
Encouraging results show that DoubleU-Net can be used as a strong baseline for both medical image segmentation and cross-dataset evaluation testing to measure the generalizability of Deep Learning (DL) models.
Recurrent residual U-Net for medical image segmentation
The experimental results show superior performance on segmentation tasks compared to equivalent models, including a variant of a fully connected convolutional neural network called SegNet, U-Net, and residual U- net.
CE-Net: Context Encoder Network for 2D Medical Image Segmentation
Comprehensive results show that the proposed CE-Net method outperforms the original U- net method and other state-of-the-art methods for optic disc segmentation, vessel detection, lung segmentation , cell contour segmentation and retinal optical coherence tomography layer segmentation.
TransAttUnet: Multi-level Attention-guided U-Net with Transformer for Medical Image Segmentation
A novel Transformer based medical image semantic segmentation framework called TransAttUnet is proposed, in which the multilevel guided attention and multi-scale skip connection are jointly designed to effectively enhance the functionality and flexibility of traditional U-shaped architecture.
SAUNet: Shape Attentive U-Net for Interpretable Medical Image Segmentation
The proposed architecture attempts to address limitations by the use of a secondary shape stream that captures rich shape-dependent information in parallel with the regular texture stream and suggests multi-resolution saliency maps can be learned using the dual-attention decoder module which allows for multi-level interpretability and mitigates the need for additional computations post hoc.
BiO-Net: Learning Recurrent Bi-directional Connections for Encoder-Decoder Architecture
A novel Bi-directional O-shape network (BiO-Net) that reuses the building blocks in a recurrent manner without introducing any extra parameters that significantly outperforms the vanilla U-Net as well as other state-of-the-art methods.
Fully convolutional attention network for biomedical image segmentation
This paper embeds two types of attention modules in the dilated fully convolutional network (FCN) to solve biomedical image segmentation tasks efficiently and accurately and proves that FCANet can improve the segmentation effect of biomedical images.
The One Hundred Layers Tiramisu: Fully Convolutional DenseNets for Semantic Segmentation
The proposed DenseNets approach achieves state-of-the-art results on urban scene benchmark datasets such as CamVid and Gatech, without any further post-processing module nor pretraining, and has much less parameters than currently published best entries for these datasets.
U-Net: Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation
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.
CIA-Net: Robust Nuclei Instance Segmentation with Contour-aware Information Aggregation
A novel deep neural network, namely Contour-aware Informative Aggregation Network (CIA-Net) with multi-level information aggregation module between two task-specific decoders that leverages the merit of spatial and texture dependencies between nuclei and contour by bi-directionally aggregating task- specific features.
