Automatic Polyp Segmentation using Fully Convolutional Neural Network

01/11/2021 ∙ by Nikhil Kumar Tomar, et al. ∙ 0

Colorectal cancer is one of fatal cancer worldwide. Colonoscopy is the standard treatment for examination, localization, and removal of colorectal polyps. However, it has been shown that the miss-rate of colorectal polyps during colonoscopy is between 6 to 27 real-time polyp segmentation during colonoscopy examinations can help the clinicians to eliminate missing lesions and prevent further progression of colorectal cancer. The “Medico automatic polyp segmentation challenge” provides an opportunity to study polyp segmentation and build a fast segmentation model. The challenge organizers provide a Kvasir-SEG dataset to train the model. Then it is tested on a separate unseen dataset to validate the efficiency and speed of the segmentation model. The experiments demonstrate that the model trained on the Kvasir-SEG dataset and tested on an unseen dataset achieves a dice coefficient of 0.7801, mIoU of 0.6847, recall of 0.8077, and precision of 0.8126, demonstrating the generalization ability of our model. The model has achieved 80.60 FPS on the unseen dataset with an image resolution of 512 × 512.
