Introduction to deep learning for medical image analysis


AI techniques such as deep learning are increasingly seen as powerful tools to address many complex problems in pathology and radiology workflows involving image segmentation and classification. MathWorks understands that success goes beyond just developing a deep learning model. Ultimately, models need to be incorporated into an entire system design workflow to deliver a product or a service to the market.

In this technical talk, we'll explore in detail the workflow involved in developing and adapting a deep learning algorithm for a medical image classification or segmentation problem using real-world case studies such as Left-Ventricle (LV) segmentation from cardiac MRI images.


  • Import and manage large sets of images
  • Perform semi-automatic ground truth labeling
  • Build networks from scratch with a drag-and-drop interface
  • Efficiently train and evaluate a semantic segmentation algorithm on CPUs and GPUs
  • Automatically generate optimized embedded code to deploy on a medical device

Who Should Attend

  • Software and hardware engineers
  • Researchers
  • Data scientists
  • Innovation leaders
  • Project managers and technical managers
