In this ISBI challenge, we developed a multi-scale deep contextual network for automatic metastasis detection. Taking advantage of powerful feature representation and end-to-end learning framework, multi-level contextual information were explored by deep supervision. We first search the regions of interest with threshold, then segment the metastasis masks utilizing the deep contextual network, a variant of fully convolutional network. Moreover, we extend it into multi-scale resolutions, hence the results can be further improved.
The following figure shows the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve of the method.
The following figure shows the free-response receiver operating characteristic (FROC) curve of the method.
The table below presents the average sensitivity of the developed system at 6 predefined false positive rates: 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, and 8 FPs per whole slide image.
