A deeply supervised attention-enabled boosted convolutional neural network (DAB-CNN) is presented as a superior alternative to current state-of-the-art convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for semantic CT segmentation. Spatial attention gates (AGs) were incorporated into a novel 3D cascaded CNN framework to prioritize relevant anatomy and suppress redundancies within the network. Due to the complexity and size of the network, incremental channel boosting was used to decrease memory usage and facilitate model convergence. Read More
