Brain MRI Segmentation using fully convolutional network



The detection of white matter hyperintensities in an efficient way is an important issue in the medical field. Indeed, these hyperintensities are complicated to detect with the naked eye, even for medical personnel. An efficient detection of these hyperintensities would allow a better diagnosis of certain neuro-degenerative diseases but also to avoid certain medical errors. This is the issue we have tried to address in this report. We propose a solution based on a convolutional neural network accompanied by a preprocessing performed on these inputs
