Keywords: Metastatic bone disease, WBDWI, transfer learning, atlas-based registration, segmentation
TL;DR: Segmentation tool for bone metastases
Abstract: An automated tool has been developed to assess bone disease on Whole-Body Diffusion Weighted Imaging (WBDWI). The tool segments areas of suspected bone disease on the high b-value sequences, transfers the ROIs obtained onto the derived Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) map and estimates the median global ADC (gADC) and the Total Diffusion Volume (TDV).
