- Abstract: In this work, we focus on brain metastasis delineation from 3D MRI scans. Currently, state-of-the-art fully-convolutional neural networks segment the whole image to solve this task. However, we suppose that it might be useful to split the problem into detection and delineation. The goal of the paper is to evaluate the first step of such approach. We propose a simple network architecture for metastasis detection by predicting downsampled segmentation. We observed an increased detection sensitivity and lower computational cost in comparison with 3D U-Net.
