Retinal Vasculature Segmentation with a U-Net Architecture

From: https://towardsdatascience.com/retinal-vasculature-segmentation-with-a-u-net-architecture-d927674cf57b The structures exhibited by the retinal vasculature infer critical information about a wide range of retinal pathologies such as Prematurity (RoP), Diabetic Retinopathy(DR), Glaucoma, hypertension, and Age-related Macular Degeneration(AMD). These pathologies are amongst the leading causes of blindness. Accurate segmentation of retinal vasculature is important for various ophthalmologic diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

LSTM-FCN architecture LSTM-FCN architecture (source: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?tp=&arnumber=8141873) This algorithm consists of 2 parts: a LSTM block and a FCN … Continue reading LSTM-FCN for cardiology

Denosing Lung CT Scans using Neural Networks with Interactive Code — Part 4, Convolutional Residual Neural Networks

From: https://towardsdatascience.com/denosing-lung-ct-scans-using-neural-networks-with-interactive-code-part-4-convolutional-resnet-74335714a4ae Another attempt to denoise CT Scan of lungs, this time we are going to use more sophisticated Convolutional ResNet Architecture. Specifically, we are going to use the architecture proposed in this paper, “Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition”. Also, as usual lets do manual back propagation to compare our results. Network Architecture (Image Form) Image … Continue reading Denosing Lung CT Scans using Neural Networks with Interactive Code — Part 4, Convolutional Residual Neural Networks

Denosing Lung CT Scans using Neural Networks with Interactive Code — Part 3, Convolutional Residual Neural Networks

From: https://towardsdatascience.com/denosing-lung-ct-scans-using-neural-networks-with-interactive-code-part-3-convolutional-residual-6dbb36b28be So since I will be using a lot of image data, I will move on to Tensorflow to harness the power of GPU however, no worries, we will implement all of our back propagation. (Also compare the final results with auto differentiation). Now due to midterms I wasn’t able to do much, so … Continue reading Denosing Lung CT Scans using Neural Networks with Interactive Code — Part 3, Convolutional Residual Neural Networks

Predicting Invasive Ductal Carcinoma using Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) in Keras

From: https://towardsdatascience.com/predicting-invasive-ductal-carcinoma-using-convolutional-neural-network-cnn-in-keras-debb429de9a6 In this blog, we will learn how to use CNN in a real world histopathology dataset. Real-world data requires a lot more preprocessing than standard datasets such as MNIST, and we will go through the process of making the data ready for classification and then use CNN to classify the images. I will … Continue reading Predicting Invasive Ductal Carcinoma using Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) in Keras

Detecting Heart Arrhythmias with Deep Learning in Keras with Dense, CNN, and LSTM

From: https://towardsdatascience.com/detecting-heart-arrhythmias-with-deep-learning-in-keras-with-dense-cnn-and-lstm-add337d9e41f Let’s detect abnormal heart beats from a single ECG signal From: https://towardsdatascience.com/detecting-heart-arrhythmias-with-deep-learning-in-keras-with-dense-cnn-and-lstm-add337d9e41f Introduction Recently, I was reviewing Andrew Ng’s team’s work(https://stanfordmlgroup.github.io/projects/ecg/) on heart arrhythmia detector with convolutional neural networks (CNN). I found this quite fascinating especially with the emergence of wearable products (e.g. Apple Watch and portable EKG machines) that are capable of … Continue reading Detecting Heart Arrhythmias with Deep Learning in Keras with Dense, CNN, and LSTM
