Deep Learning Models for Medical Imaging explains the concepts of Deep Learning (DL) and its importance in medical imaging and/or healthcare using two different case studies: a) cytology image analysis and b) coronavirus (COVID-19) prediction, screening, and decision-making, using publicly available datasets in their respective experiments. Of many DL models, custom Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), ResNet, InceptionNet and DenseNet are used. The results follow ‘with’ and ‘without’ transfer learning (including different optimization solutions), in addition to the use of data augmentation and ensemble networks. DL models for medical imaging are suitable for a wide range of readers starting from early career research scholars, professors/scientists to industrialists.

Key Features

    Heavy technical book

    Enjoyed the book and those applications - this book, I would recommend University Libraries to consider as reference books for computer science, health informatics, and biomedical engineering departments, to name a few.

    Best book for understanding medical imaging

    Best book, where authors write solidly for medical imaging problems using deep learning models. Book could possibly be used for industry as well. Research scholars will be benefiting from this book, for sure. I truly enjoyed the book.

    Technically sound book - well written

    Well-written technically sound book: authors did really show their mileage in terms of writing (technical) with multiple applications. I, personally, love Covid-19 chapter, where authors discussed on the use of prediction, screening, and decision-making. Hats off to authors - well done!
