  • Keywords: Deep learning, transfer learning, synthetic data, vasculature, neural pathways
  • Abstract: Novel microscopic techniques yield high-resolution volumetric scans of complex anatomical structures such as the blood vasculature or the nervous system. Here, we show how transfer learning and synthetic data generation can be used to train deep neural networks to segment these structures successfully in the absence of or with very limited training data.
