  • Abstract: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a common type of stroke with high morbidity and mortality rate. Edema often forms around ICH. Because edema increases the chance of poor outcome, edema quantification is needed for finding the optimal ICH treatment. CNN has been proven to be a reliable method in medical image segmentation. In this study, we introduce CNN to develop an automated method for edema and ICH quantification. We found that our CNN is a promising quantification method for edema.
