Transfer Learning with Edge Attention for Prostate MRI Segmentation

12/20/2019 ∙ by Xiangxiang Qin, et al. ∙ 0

Prostate cancer is one of the common diseases in men, and it is the most common malignant tumor in developed countries. Studies have shown that the male prostate incidence rate is as high as 2.5 prostate cancer in Asia is lower than that in the West, but it is increas-ing rapidly. If prostate cancer can be found as early as possible and treated in time, it will have a high survival rate. Therefore, it is of great significance for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. In this paper, we propose a trans-fer learning method based on deep neural network for prostate MRI segmenta-tion. In addition, we design a multi-level edge attention module using wavelet decomposition to overcome the difficulty of ambiguous boundary in prostate MRI segmentation tasks. The prostate images were provided by MICCAI Grand Challenge-Prostate MR Image Segmentation 2012 (PROMISE 12) challenge dataset.
