Deep Learning Models for Medical Imaging is suitable for computer science, medical imaging and biomedical engineering researchers and students who need up-to-date deep learning tools to apply to medical image analysis problems. The book presents deep learning concepts and modeling as applied to medical imaging and/or healthcare, using two different real-world case studies, providing complete implementation (via GitHub) of both standard (e.g. LeNet, Alexnet, VGGNet, ResNet and InceptionNet) and recent models (Mobile net and squeeze-and excitation net).

Key Features

  • Provides a step-by-step approach to develop deep learning models
  • Presents case studies showing end-to-end implementation
  • Includes codes provided in GitHub


Engineers and biomedical engineers, medical imaging researchers and graduate students
