Project Description

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps

Diffusely abnormal white matter (“DAWM”) are fuzzy-bordered areas of subtly increased signal intensity on proton density or T2-weighted images. These abnormalities have been referred to as dirty white matter or dirty-appearing white matter. The goal is to develop an automated system that accurately segments diffusely abnormal white matter.

  • We would like to use the 3D unet that is shown to be a great architecture for biomedical image segmentation.
  • The 3D-Unet architecture is implemented in Lasagne and it is currently being trained.
