    Abstract: A contrast parameter learning system is operable to generate contrast significance data for a computer vision model, where the computer vision model was generated by performing a training step on a training set of medical scans. Significant contrast parameters are identified based on the contrast significance data. A re-contrasted training set is generated by performing an intensity transformation function that utilizes the significant contrast parameters on the training set of medical scans. A re-trained model is generated by performing the training step on the first re-contrasted training set. Re-contrasted image data of a new medical scan is generated by performing the intensity transformation function. Inference data is generated by performing an inference function that utilizes the first re-trained model on the re-contrasted image data.
