Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE-BASED IMAGE ANALYSIS FOR DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF LESIONS
Abstract
(EN)

Presented herein are systems and methods that provide for improved detection and characterization of lesions within a subject via automated analysis of nuclear medicine images, such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images. In particular, in certain embodiments, the approaches described herein leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to detect regions of 3D nuclear medicine images corresponding to hotspots that represent potential cancerous lesions in the subject. The machine learning modules may be used not only to detect presence and locations of such regions within an image, but also to segment the region corresponding to the lesion and/or classify such hotspots based on the likelihood that they are indicative of a true, underlying cancerous lesion. This AI-based lesion detection, segmentation, and classification can provide a basis for further characterization of lesions, overall tumor burden, and estimation of disease severity and risk.
