  3. 3. Polyp segmentation using artificial neural networks

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Antoni Rodríguez Villegas; [2020]
    Keywords : Semantic segmentation; Polyp segmentation; Neural Networks; Computer Vision; ANN; FCN; Deep Learning; Colorectal cancer;

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer is the second cause of cancer death in the world. Aiming to early detect and prevent this type of cancer, clinicians perform screenings through the colon searching for polyps (colorectal cancer precursor lesions).If found, these lesions are susceptible of being removed in order to further ana-lyze their malignancy degree.
