Evaluation and Analysis of Different Aggregation and Hyperparameter Selection Methods for Federated Brain Tumor Segmentation

Availability of large, diverse, and multi-national datasets is crucial for the development of effective and clinically applicable AI systems in the medical imaging domain. However, forming a global model by bringing these datasets together at a central location, comes along with various data privacy and ownership problems. To alleviate these problems, several recent studies focus on the federated learning paradigm, a distributed learning approach for decentralized data. Federated learning leverages all the available data without any need for sharing collaborators’ data with each other or collecting them on a central server. Studies show that federated learning can provide competitive performance with conventional central training, while having a good generalization capability. In this work, we have investigated several federated learning approaches on the brain tumor segmentation problem. We explore different strategies for faster convergence and better performance which can also work on strong Non-IID cases.

Review of MRI-based Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Using Deep Learning Methods
Işın, Ali; Direkoğlu, Cem; Şah, Melike (Elsevier BV; 2016)
Brain tumor segmentation is an important task in medical image processing. Early diagnosis of brain tumors plays an important role in improving treatment possibilities and increases the survival rate of the patients. Manual segmentation of the brain tumors for cancer diagnosis, from large amount of MRI images generated in clinical routine, is a difficult and time consuming task. There is a need for automatic brain tumor image segmentation. The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of MRI-based brain ...
Integration of Federated Medical Systems for Vendor Neutral Image Access in Teleradiology Applications
Yilmaz, Ayhan Ozan; Baykal, Nazife (2014-09-03)
This paper proposes a framework designed to interconnect medical imaging facilities and teleradiology service providers on a single access interface. This framework aims to solve the interoperability issues of Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), Radiology Information System (RIS) and Hospital Information System (HIS) developed by different vendors and enrich the digital health record delivered to non-local radiologists or physicians with the integrated information from several systems. This i...
Data mining algorithms have been applied in various fields of medicine to get insights about diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases. This gives rise to more research on personalized medicine as patient data can be utilized to predict outcomes of certain treatment procedures. Accordingly, this study aims to create a model to provide decision support for surgeons in Neurooncology surgery. For this purpose, we have analyzed clinical pathology records of Neurooncology patients through various classificatio...
Deep Learning-Enabled Technologies for Bioimage Analysis
Rabbi, Fazle; Dabbagh, Sajjad Rahmani; Angın, Pelin; Yetisen, Ali Kemal; Tasoglu, Savas (2022-02-01)
Deep learning (DL) is a subfield of machine learning (ML), which has recently demon-strated its potency to significantly improve the quantification and classification workflows in bio-medical and clinical applications. Among the end applications profoundly benefitting from DL, cellular morphology quantification is one of the pioneers. Here, we first briefly explain fundamental concepts in DL and then we review some of the emerging DL-enabled applications in cell morphology quantification in the fields of em...
Deep learning for detection and segmentation of artefact and disease instances in gastrointestinal endoscopy
Ali, Sharib; et. al. (2021-05-01)
The Endoscopy Computer Vision Challenge (EndoCV) is a crowd-sourcing initiative to address eminent problems in developing reliable computer aided detection and diagnosis endoscopy systems and suggest a pathway for clinical translation of technologies. Whilst endoscopy is a widely used diagnostic and treatment tool for hollow-organs, there are several core challenges often faced by endoscopists, mainly: 1) presence of multi-class artefacts that hinder their visual interpretation, and 2) difficulty in identif...
