Abstract

Machine learning (ML) algorithms have made a tremendous impact in the field of medical imaging. While medical imaging datasets have been growing in size, a challenge for supervised ML algorithms that is frequently mentioned is the lack of annotated data. As a result, various methods that can learn with less/other types of supervision, have been proposed. We give an overview of semi-supervised, multiple instance, and transfer learning in medical imaging, both in diagnosis or segmentation tasks. We also discuss connections between these learning scenarios, and opportunities for future research. A dataset with the details of the surveyed papers is available via https://figshare.com/articles/Database_of_surveyed_literature_in_Not-so-supervised_a_survey_of_semi-supervised_multi-instance_and_transfer_learning_in_medical_image_analysis_/7479416.
