TL;DR: Novel framework for multi-model brain tumor MRI generation with diffusion model
Abstract: Deep-learning based image generation methods have been widely used to overcome data deficiency. The same is true also as in medical field, where data shortage problem is frequent. In this study, we propose multi-modal brain tumor Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) generation framework, called Disentangled Latent Diffusion Model (DLDM) to tackle data deficiency in medical imaging. We train an autoencoder that disentangles the feature of multi-modal MR images into modality-sharing and modality-specific representations. By utilizing the feature disentanglement learned from the autoencoder, we were able to train a diffusion model that can generate modality-sharing and modality-specific latent vector. We evaluate our approach with clean-FID and improved precision \& recall. The results were compared with GAN-based model, StyleGAN2.
