You’ll learn how to apply deep learning to radiology and medical imaging in this class. The workshop covers:

  • Image segmentation, which classifies each pixel into a specific class
  • Training a Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to infer the volume of the left ventricle of the human heart from time-series MRI data
  • Understand techniques to use radiomics(imaging genomics) to identify the genomics of a disease.

Ideally, students in this course has a basic familiarity with deep neural networks, either through the DLI Fundamentals of Computer Vision course or another online training program. Basic coding experience in python or a similar language is also useful.

Learn techniques for placing each pixel of an image into a specific class

Image Analysis

  • Extend a canonical 2D CNN to more complex data
  • Use the framework MXNet through the standard Python API and through R
  • Process high-dimensionality imagery that may be volumetric and have a temporal component

Leverage Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for medical image analysis to infer patient status from non-visible images. Train a CNN to infer the volume of the left ventricle of the human heart from time-series MRI data

Image Classification with TensorFlow

  • Design and train Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)
  • Use imaging genomics (radiomics) to create biomarkers that identify the genomics of a disease without the use of an invasive biopsy
  • Explore the radiogenomics work being done at the Mayo Clinic

Learn about the work being performed at the Mayo Clinic, using deep learning techniques to detect Radiomics from MRI imaging that has led to more effective treatments and better health outcomes for patients with brain tumors
