Improving The Automatic Segmentation Of Elongated Organs Using Geometrical Priors

Abstract : Deep neural networks are widely used for automated organ segmentation as they achieve promising results for clinical applications. Some organs are more challenging to delineate than others, for instance due to low contrast at their boundaries. In this paper, we propose to improve the segmentation of elongated organs thanks to Geometrical Priors that can be introduced during training, using a local Tversky loss function, or at post-processing, using local thresholds. Both strategies do not introduce additional training parameters and can be easily applied to any existing network. The proposed method is evaluated on the challenging problem of pancreas segmentation. Results show that Geometrical Priors allow us to correct the systematic under-segmentation pattern of a state-of-the-art method, while preserving the overall segmentation quality.
