Title: 1, 2, 3: U-Nets for Medical Data Segmentation
U-Nets are fully convolutional neural networks known for their excellent performance in image segmentation. This talk discusses U-Nets for semantic segmentation of 1-, 2- and 3-dimensional medical data, with a special emphasis on data augmentation and generalisation across clinical protocols, cohorts, and tasks. A general, lightweight system for efficient and accurate 3D image segmentation is discussed. It requires no task-specific information, almost no human interaction and is based on a fixed neural network topology and a fixed hyperparameter set, eliminating the need for model selection and its inherent tendency to cause overfitting. The talk also presents U-Time, a feed-forward network for physiological time series segmentation developed for the analysis of sleep data. U-Time maps sequential inputs of arbitrary length to sequences of class labels on a freely chosen temporal scale. The presented systems are available in open source and do not require deep learning expertise to use.

Title: Cross-Modality Segmentation: Domain Adaptation via Disentangled Representations
Abstract: Neural network models trained on some labeled data from a certain distribution generally perform poorly on data from different distributions due to distribution mismatch, i.e. domain shifts. Unsupervised domain adaptation addresses this problem by alleviating the domain shift between the labeled source data and the unlabeled target data. We achieve cross-modality segmentation, i.e. domain adaptation between CT and MRI, via disentangled representations.

Title: Deep Image Analysis – From research to product &OPEN DISCUSSION
This workshop will focus on the latest and greatest Deep Learning methodologies for medical image analysis. We will present and discuss the methods that have shown most robustness - over multiple tasks, across multiple institutes; along with the newest models being proposed today. In addition to network development, attention needs to be given to the training and testing methods used, to reach standardized rigorous evaluation.
