Deep Learning for Healthcare Image Analysis

Presented by SGInnovate, NVIDIA & NSCC

SGInnovate, together with the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) is proud to bring to you Deep Learning for Healthcare Image Analysis.

Led by seasoned instructors, you can expect to learn the latest deep learning techniques for designing and deploying neural network-powered machine learning across a variety of application domains.

This workshop teaches you to apply deep learning to radiology and medical imaging. The workshop starts with image segmentation which is a technique to classify each pixel into a specific class, followed by training Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to infer the volume of the left ventricle of the human heart from time-series MRI data and concludes by teaching techniques to use radiomics (imaging genomics) to identify the genomics of a disease. Ideally, a student who enrols in this course should have a basic familiarity with deep neural networks, either through the DLI Fundamentals of Computer Vision course or another online training program. Basic coding experience in Python or a similar language is also useful.

In the course, participants will learn to:

  • Perform image segmentation on MRI images to determine the location of the left ventricle
  • Calculate ejection fractions by measuring differences between diastole and systole using CNNs applied to MRI scans to detect heart disease
  • Apply CNNs to MRI scans of low-grade gliomas (LGGs) to determine 1p/19q chromosome co-deletion status
