Denoise Pre-Training For Segmentation Neural Networks
MetadataShow full item record
This paper proposes a method for pre-training segmentation neural networks on small datasets using unlabelled training data with added noise. The pre-training process helps the network with initial better weights settings for the training itself and also augments the training dataset when dealing with small labelled datasets especially in medical imaging. The experiment comparing results of pre-trained and not pre-trained networks on MRI brain segmentation task has shown that the denoise pre-training helps the network with faster training convergence without overfitting and achieving better results in all compared metrics even on very small datasets.
