Research output: PatentPatent publication


Images may be preprocessed to select pixels or voxels of interest prior to being analyzed by a neural network. Only the pixels or voxels of interest may be analyzed by the neural network to identify an object of interest. One or more slices may be extracted from the voxels of interest and provided to the neural network for analysis. The object may be further localized after identification by the neural network. The preprocessing, analysis by the neural network, and/or localization may utilize pre-existing knowledge of the object to be identified.
