Unlabeled Data Deployment for Classification of Diabetic Retinopathy Images Using Knowledge Transfer

02/09/2020 ∙ by Sajjad Abbasi, et al. ∙ 0

Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are extensively beneficial for medical image processing. Medical images are plentiful, but there is a lack of annotated data. Transfer learning is used to solve the problem of lack of labeled data and grants CNNs better training capability. Transfer learning can be used in many different medical applications; however, the model under transfer should have the same size as the original network. Knowledge distillation is recently proposed to transfer the knowledge of a model to another one and can be useful to cover the shortcomings of transfer learning. But some parts of the knowledge may not be distilled by knowledge distillation. In this paper, a novel knowledge distillation using transfer learning is proposed to transfer the whole knowledge of a model to another one. The proposed method can be beneficial and practical for medical image analysis in which a small number of labeled data are available. The proposed process is tested for diabetic retinopathy classification. Simulation results demonstrate that using the proposed method, knowledge of an extensive network can be transferred to a smaller model.
