Segmentation in MRI with 3D Convolutional Neural Networks

The researches find that the External-beam radiotherapy followed by High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy is the standard-of-care for treating gynecologic cancers. Therefore The enhanced soft-tissue contrast provided by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) makes it a valuable imaging modality for diagnosing and treating these cancers. But However; in contrast to Compute Tomography (CT) imaging, the appearance…
