Abstract

The U-net is a promising architecture for medical segmentation problems. In this paper, we show how this architecture can be effectively applied to cerebral DSA series. The usage of multiple images as input allows for better distinguishing between vessel and background. Furthermore, the U-net can be trained with a small corpus when combined with useful data augmentations like mirroring, rotation, and additionally biasing. Our variant of the network achieves a DSC of 87.98% on the segmentation task. We compare this to different configurations and discuss the effect on various artifacts like bones, glue, and screws.
