On Friday, September 16th at 13:00 CEST, Diana Mateus, LS2N laboratory / Ecole Centrale Nantes, delivers a lecture on “Deep learning for medical image analysis: self-supervision, graphs and priors,” as part of the Correlated Imaging Series by COMULIS and Euro-BioImaging.
This talk will address fundamental medical image analysis tasks such as classification, segmentation, registration, and ranking with deep learning methods. The focus will be on techniques that help handle issues raised by the small medical datasets typically having few or noisy annotations. In the past years, our team has proposed different advances to counter these issues, for instance, relying on self-supervised techniques, incorporating prior knowledge, or considering the image regions' topology (graph modeling) to guide the predictions. We will also discuss a new formulation of the image registration problem following the Deep Image Prior (DIP) paradigm. We will illustrate these methodological contributions in the context of several medical applications:
- Breast cancer diagnosis (mammography and tomosynthesis)
- Muscle volume estimation (ultrasound)
- Survival analysis on PET images
