Deep Learning for Rheumatoid Arthritis: Joint Detection and Damage Scoring in X-rays

by   Krzysztof Maziarz, et al.

Recent advancements in computer vision promise to automate medical image analysis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that would profit from computer-based diagnosis, as there are no direct markers known, and doctors have to rely on manual inspection of X-ray images. In this work, we present a multi-task deep learning model that simultaneously learns to localize joints on X-ray images and diagnose two kinds of joint damage: narrowing and erosion. Additionally, we propose a modification of label smoothing, which combines classification and regression cues into a single loss and achieves 5 error reduction compared to standard loss functions. Our final model obtained 4th place in joint space narrowing and 5th place in joint erosion in the global RA2 DREAM challenge.
