RAP-Net: Coarse-to-Fine Multi-Organ Segmentation with Single Random Anatomical Prior

Dec. 28, 2020—Ho Hin Lee, Yucheng Tang, Shunxing Bao, Richard G. Abramson, Yuankai Huo, Bennett A. Landman. “RAP-Net: Coarse-to-Fine Multi-Organ Segmentation with Single Random Anatomical Prior.” arXiv preprint arXiv:2012.12425 (2020). Full Text Abstract Performing coarse-to-fine abdominal multi-organ segmentation facilitates to extract high-resolution segmentation minimizing the lost of spatial contextual information. However, current coarse-to-refine approaches require a significant number of models...
