Deep Learning-Based System Detects and Classifies Mammogram Masses

Researchers from the Kyung Hee University have developed a fully integrated computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system that uses deep learning and a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) to detect, segment and classify masses from mammograms. In a new study published by the International Journal of Medical Informatics, the researchers have described the use of their regional deep learning model, You-Only-Look-Once (YOLO), to detect breast mass from entire mammograms. The researchers then went on to use a new deep network model based on a full resolution convolutional network (FrCN), to segment the mass lesions pixel-to-pixel. Finally, a deep CNN was used to recognize the mass and classify it as either benign or malignant. More...

AI Software for Restoring Photos Could Find Use in Medical Imaging

Researchers have developed a deep learning-based approach that can fix photos originally taken in low light and are grainy or pixilated, and automatically remove the noise and artifacts by simply looking at examples of corrupted photos only. The approach can also be used to enhance MRI images, which could pave the way for a drastic improvement in medical imaging. More...

FDA Gives Clearance to World's First Deep-Learning Solution to Assist Workflow Triage

A brain solution that works with radiologists to flag acute intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) cases in head CTs and is the world's first deep-learning solution to assist radiologists in workflow triage has been granted clearance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The product is the first of the expanding suite of artificial intelligence (AI)-based workflow optimization solutions to be offered by Aidoc, a provider of AI solutions for radiologists. More...

Deep Learning-Based System Detects Lesions in Knee MR Images

Researchers from the department of radiology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health have developed a deep learning approach to detect cartilage lesions by evaluating MR images of the knee. The researchers used segmentation and classification convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to develop the fully automated deep learning–based cartilage lesion detection system. More...
