Four-Project Series

Transfer Learning for Dicom Image Classification

filed under

In this series of liveProjects, you’ll use deep learning to build an image classification model that can perform early diagnostics of COVID-19. Your model will examine X-rays and CT scans and seek to classify them as either COVID or non-COVID types. You’ll start by training custom deep learning models from scratch, and then experiment with transfer learning using premade models. Familiarity with both these approaches will ensure you’re able to design a powerful solution for any deep learning problem, model, or dataset. Finally, you’ll test and report on the efficiency of trained models to decide which model delivers the best results.

These projects are designed for learning purposes and are not complete, production-ready applications or solutions.

here's what's included

Project 1 Build a VGG16 Model
In this liveProject, you’ll build a VGG16 deep learning model from scratch to analyze medical imagery. A VGG16 is a deep convolutional network model which has shown to achieve high accuracy in image based pattern recognition tasks. You’ll then train your model on X-ray and CT datasets, and plot validation loss, and accuracies vs. epochs. You’ll build an important familiarity with the functional blocks of a DL model, how data must be formatted, and which layers to use to solve your problems.

Project 2 Build a ResNet Model
In this liveProject, you’ll build a ResNet deep learning model from scratch to analyze medical imagery. A ResNet is a deep neural network model which uses "Residual blocks" and "skip connections" to reduce the need for very deep networks while still achieving high accuracy. You’ll then train your model on X-ray and CT datasets, and plot validation loss, and accuracies vs. epochs. You’ll build an important familiarity with the functional blocks of a DL model, how data must be formatted, and which layers to use to solve your problems.

Project 3 Transfer Learning
In this liveProject, you’ll take pretrained VGG16 and ResNet models from the Python Keras library and train them further upon your medical image dataset of X-ray and CT scans. This transfer learning is a highly effective technique for quickly generating reliable machine learning models when you only have a small data set. You’ll experiment with the Keras loss functions to determine which are best for COVID image classification, and check your training and prediction times as a critical parameter of real-world applications.

Project 4 Evaluate and Explain DL Models
In this liveProject, you’ll implement model performance metrics that can test the effectiveness of your models. You’ll calculate accuracy, precision, F1 score and recall values from the classification results for an existing model, and then estimate the ROC curve and AUC value. Finally, you’ll create a Gradient Class Activation Map. This map can highlight features and regions in an image that the deep learning model finds important, and manually inspect whether the model is performing in the desired way.
