Abstract

We propose a segmentation method of cell membrane and nucleus by integrating branches with different roles in a deep neural network. When we use the U-net for segmentation of cell membrane and nucleus, the accuracy is not sufficient. It may be difficult to classify multi-classes by only one network. Thus, we designed a deep network with multiple branches that have different roles. We give each branch a role which segments only cell membrane or nucleus or background, and probability map is generated at each branch. Finally, the generated probability maps by three branches are fed into the convolution layer to improve the accuracy. The final convolutional layer calculates the posterior probability by integrating the probability maps of three branches. Experimental results show that our method improved the segmentation accuracy in comparison with the U-net.
