Convolutional Neural Network and decision support in medical imaging: case study of the recognition of blood cell subtypes
Abstract: Identifying and characterizing the patient's blood samples is indispen-
sable in diagnostics of malignance suspicious. A painstaking and sometime
sub-jective task are used in laboratories to manually classify white blood cells.
Neural mathematical methods as deep learnings can be very useful in the automated
recognition of four (4) subtypes of blood cells for medical application.
The purpose of this study is to use deep learning for image recognition of the
four (4) blood cell types and to enable it to tag them. These approaches therefore
depend on convolutional neural networks. To do this, we have a dataset of
blood cells with labels of the corresponding cell types.
The elements of the database are the input of our convolution which is a simple
mathematical tool that is widely used for image processing. These databases
have allowed us to create learning models for image recognition, particularly of
the blood cell type. Based on the fact that a deep neural network model is able
to rec-ognize each element of a scene provided it has been trained for this purpose,
this activity focused on carefully selecting the optimization parameters of
the model. We evaluated the recognition performance and outputs learned by
the networks in order to implement a neural image recognition model capable
of distinguishing polynuclear cells (neutrophil and eosinophil) from those of
mononuclear cells (lymphocyte and monocyte). The classification accuracy on
the learning dataset is 97.39% and the validation accuracy is 97.77%. Images
detection failure is very low.
