Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The rapid development of advanced computational algorithms from the domain of machine learning has shown promise for application in the clinical environment to (1) assist clinicians with tedious daily tasks and allow them to focus more on complex or urgent patient management, (2) offer second reads or opinions on tasks that require specialized training, as well as (3) assist in the training and education of new clinical experts. This chapter offers an overview of the state-of-the-art deep learning applications in the field of brain and breast cancer, as well as challenges and potential methods to improve the reproducibility of deep learning algorithms in biomedical image analysis of brain and breast cancer patients. The included references should not be considered as an exhaustive literature review but as studies serving as examples for the points made in this chapter.
