An open-source convolutional neural networks platform for research in medical image analysis and image-guided therapy

Project description

NiftyNet is a TensorFlow-based [1] open-source convolutional neural networks (CNN) platform for research in medical image analysis and image-guided therapy. NiftyNet’s modular structure is designed for sharing networks and pre-trained models. Using this modular structure you can:

  • Get started with established pre-trained networks using built-in tools
  • Adapt existing networks to your imaging data
  • Quickly build new solutions to your own image analysis problems

NiftyNet is a consortium of research groups (WEISS – Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, CMIC – Centre for Medical Image Computing, HIG – High-dimensional Imaging Group), where WEISS acts as the consortium lead.

[1]Please install the appropriate TensorFlow PyPI package (tensorflow or tensorflow-gpu) before executing pip install niftynet – see the instructions on the NiftyNet source code repository for details.

Features

NiftyNet currently supports medical image segmentation and generative adversarial networks. NiftyNet is not intended for clinical use. Other features of NiftyNet include:

  • Easy-to-customise interfaces of network components
  • Sharing networks and pretrained models
  • Support for 2-D, 2.5-D, 3-D, 4-D inputs [2]
  • Efficient discriminative training with multiple-GPU support
  • Implementation of recent networks (HighRes3DNet, 3D U-net, V-net, DeepMedic)
  • Comprehensive evaluation metrics for medical image segmentation
[2]2.5-D: volumetric images processed as a stack of 2D slices; 4-D: co-registered multi-modal 3D volumes
