- Title of the tutorial:
Medical Image Analysis Using Deep Learning

- Abstract:

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) – particularly machine learning – has experienced significant growth during the past 20 years, and many intelligent systems for medical diagnosis have been developed both in industry and academia. More recently, the emergence of a machine learning paradigm known as deep learning has further energized the field and enabled the development of medical image analysis systems that can display remarkable accuracy, to the point of raising concerns about the future of human experts, such as radiologists and anatomical pathologists.

In this tutorial we provide an extensive coverage of the impact of machine learning on medical image analysis, with emphasis on the increasingly popular deep learning techniques currently being used to design and implement intelligent medical imaging-based diagnosis systems.

This tutorial includes the following main topics: (1) Machine learning (ML): fundamentals, tools, and best practices; (2) Deep learning: fundamentals, success stories, and frameworks; (3) Medical image analysis tools and techniques; (4) Medical image analysis using ML and deep learning: examples, datasets, benchmarks, and challenges.
