Medical image recognition through Deep Learning algorithms

Data Science Methods

Deep Learning is a machine learning algorithm often used in image recognition. This method reduces a medical image (MRI, CT, plain radiographs) to a numeric matrix, and an algorithm then analyzes this matrix in search of certain features associated with specific radiologic signs and diagnosis. It presents several advantages over the traditional way of image classification by clinical experts. Below we outline the comparison between the two, how the algorithm works, and what you would need if you would like to create a Deep Learning algorithm for your image recognition task. [Read More]
