Detail of the student project

Topic:Deep learning for automatic detection of multiple myeloma from CT images
Supervisor:Prof. Dr. Ing. Jan Kybic , Jan Hering Dipl.-Math.
Description:The task is to develop a deep learning (convolutional neural network) method to detect multiple myeloma in 3D CT images of long bones, especially femurs. Several network architectures should be tried and the performance compared with a classical solution. The particularity is that only weak annotations are possible - we know whether a subject is healthy or not but a precise location of the lesion is not available. This leads to so-called multiple instance learning methods.

Recommended implementation languages are Python or Julia.
