Ischemic Stroke Lesion Segmentation Using Adversarial Learning

Ischemic stroke occurs through a blockage of clogged blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. Segmentation of the stroke lesion is vital to improve diagnosis, outcome assessment and treatment planning. In this work, we propose a segmentation model with adversarial learning for ischemic lesion segmentation. We adopt U-Net with skip connection and dropout as segmentation baseline network and a fully connected network (FCN) as discriminator network. Discriminator network consists of 5 convolution layers followed by leaky-ReLU and an upsampling layer to rescale the output to the size of the input map. Training a segmentation network along with an adversarial network can detect and correct higher order inconsistencies between the segmentation maps produced by ground-truth and the Segmentor. We exploit three modalities (CT, DPWI, CBF) of acute computed tomography (CT) perfusion data provided in ISLES 2018 (Ischemic Stroke Lesion Segmentation) for ischemic lesion segmentation. Our model has achieved dice accuracy of 42.10 training and 39
