Keywords: ;

Abstract: This master thesis is the study of multi-task learning to train a neural network to segment medical images and predict anatomical landmarks. The paper shows the results from experiments using medical landmarks in order to attempt to help the network learn the important organ structures quicker. The results found in this study are inconclusive and rather than showing the efficiency of the multi-task framework for learning, they tell a story of the importance of choosing the tasks and dataset wisely. The study also reflects and depicts the general difficulties and pitfalls of performing a project of this type.
