Brief description

In recent years, general deep learning-based methods have been vastly successful for medical image processing problems. This novel, data-driven methodology introduces high demands on the availability of big datasets for model training, which is an issue in many medical image processing tasks. Geometric deep learning (GDL) is a family of deep learning methods that utilise mathematical concepts of structures, symmetries, and in- or equivariances. Those intrinsic geometric properties of the data and the underlying domains are used here to build problem-specific models. This PhD project demonstrates how GDL can be applied to concrete medical image processing problems. Moreover, the project shows that GDL is a viable alternative for problems with small training datasets. The problems addressed in this thesis include trabecular bone stiffness estimation from micro-CT data, CT-based lung cancer survival rate prediction, tractography extracted from diffusion MRI data, and structural brain connectivity.
