Efficient OCT Image Segmentation Using Neural Architecture Search

07/28/2020 ∙ by Saba Heidari Gheshlaghi, et al. ∙ 0

In this work, we propose a Neural Architecture Search (NAS) for retinal layer segmentation in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scans. We incorporate the Unet architecture in the NAS framework as its backbone for the segmentation of the retinal layers in our collected and pre-processed OCT image dataset. At the pre-processing stage, we conduct super resolution and image processing techniques on the raw OCT scans to improve the quality of the raw images. For our search strategy, different primitive operations are suggested to find the down- up-sampling cell blocks, and the binary gate method is applied to make the search strategy practical for the task in hand. We empirically evaluated our method on our in-house OCT dataset. The experimental results demonstrate that the self-adapting NAS-Unet architecture substantially outperformed the competitive human-designed architecture by achieving 95.4 over Union metric and 78.7
