  • TL;DR: We use synthetic retina images to improve lesion segmentation performance.
  • Abstract: Automatic segmentation of retina lesions have been a long standing and challenging task for learning based models, mostly due to the lack of available and accurate lesion segmentation datasets. In this paper, we propose a two-step process for generating photo-realistic fundus images conditioned on synthetic "ground truth" semantic labels, and demonstrate its potential for further downstream tasks, such as, but not limited to; automated grading of diabetic retinopathy, dataset balancing, creating image examples for trainee ophthalmologists, etc.
