Automated Pancreas Segmentation Using Multi-institutional Collaborative Deep Learning

by   Pochuan Wang, et al.

The performance of deep learning-based methods strongly relies on the number of datasets used for training. Many efforts have been made to increase the data in the medical image analysis field. However, unlike photography images, it is hard to generate centralized databases to collect medical images because of numerous technical, legal, and privacy issues. In this work, we study the use of federated learning between two institutions in a real-world setting to collaboratively train a model without sharing the raw data across national boundaries. We quantitatively compare the segmentation models obtained with federated learning and local training alone. Our experimental results show that federated learning models have higher generalizability than standalone training.
