Abstract

This paper introduces a left atrial segmentation pipeline that utilises a deep neural network for learning segmentations of the LA from Gadolinium enhancement magnetic resonance images (GE-MRI). The trainable fully-convolutional neural network consists of an encoder network and a corresponding decoder network followed by a pixel-wise classification layer. The entire network has 17 convolutional layers, with the encoder network containing 5 convolutional layers, and the decoder network containing 11 convolution layers with 1 additional convolution layer in between. The training image database consisted of manually annotated GE-MRI images ((Formula Presented)
