In the medical field, landmark detection in MRI plays an important role in reducing medical technician efforts in tasks like scan planning, image registration, etc. First, 88 landmarks spread across the brain anatomy in the three respective views- sagittal, coronal, and axial are manually annotated, later guidelines from the expert clinical technicians are taken subanatomy-wise, for better localization of the existing landmarks, in order to identify and locate the important atlas landmarks even… 


On the Compactness, Efficiency, and Representation of 3D Convolutional Networks: Brain Parcellation as a Pretext Task
This work investigates efficient and flexible elements of modern convolutional networks such as dilated convolution and residual connection, and proposes a high-resolution, compact Convolutional network for volumetric image segmentation.

Grad-CAM: Visual Explanations from Deep Networks via Gradient-Based Localization
This work proposes a technique for producing ‘visual explanations’ for decisions from a large class of Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)-based models, making them more transparent and explainable, and shows that even non-attention based models learn to localize discriminative regions of input image.
Visualizing and Understanding Convolutional Networks
A novel visualization technique is introduced that gives insight into the function of intermediate feature layers and the operation of the classifier in large Convolutional Network models, used in a diagnostic role to find model architectures that outperform Krizhevsky et al on the ImageNet classification benchmark.
Albumentations: fast and flexible image augmentations
Albumentations is presented, a fast and flexible open source library for image augmentation with many various image transform operations available that is also an easy-to-use wrapper around other augmentation libraries.
Federated learning: a collaborative effort to achieve better medical imaging models for individual sites that have small labelled datasets.
This work proposes an alternative solution using a relatively new learning framework, called federated learning, that allows individual sites to train a global model in a collaborative effort without directly sharing datasets and ensures that patient privacy is maintained across sites.
Deep High-Resolution Representation Learning for Human Pose Estimation
This paper proposes a network that maintains high-resolution representations through the whole process of human pose estimation and empirically demonstrates the effectiveness of the network through the superior pose estimation results over two benchmark datasets: the COCO keypoint detection dataset and the MPII Human Pose dataset.
Augmentor: An Image Augmentation Library for Machine Learning
Augmentor is a software package that provides a high level API for the expansion of image data using a stochastic, pipeline-based approach which effectively allows for images to be sampled from a distribution of augmented images at runtime.
