If you are interested in learning an impactful medical application of artificial intelligence, this series of articles is the one you should looking at.
My goal is to show you how you can use deep learning and computer vision to assist radiologists in automatically diagnosing severe knee injuries from MRI scans.
To do this, we'll first explore the MRNet dataset in this first post. We'll then build a deep learning classification model in PyTorch in the next post and develop an interpretation pipeline in the last one.
By the end, you'll have an overview of a medical imaging application with different components that you can use elsewhere in similar situations.
Let's start.
