  • Publication number: 20240020944
    Abstract: A method and system for sampling and augmenting a dataset associated with a first class and a second class, respectively, to balance the dataset of images is described. The method includes receiving a required number of reduced set of dataset images associated with the first class, creating a plurality of clusters from a set of images associated with the first class, and selecting a representative image from each cluster to provide a reduced set of images. Further, a median image and a non-defect artifact mask is generated corresponding to the set of images associated with the first class. Additionally, a defect foreground is extracted based on the median image and each defect image of another set of images associated with the second class. Finally, the at least one non-defect artifact is removed from the defect foreground to provide a new synthetic defect image for each defect image for augmentation.

  • Publication number: 20230410981
    Abstract: A medical image display system is a medical image display system that displays a medical image. The medical image includes an image in which at least one annotation indicating a detection result of at least one anatomical structure shown in a captured image of a subject is superimposed on the captured image. The medical image display system includes: a display that displays the medical image; and a controller that, when a size of an annotation indicating an anatomical structure having an abnormality among the at least one annotation is less than a threshold value, causes the display to superimpose a probabilistic atlas indicating a normal structure assumed in a case where the anatomical structure having the abnormality is normal, on the captured image.
