Towards Fine Whole-Slide Skeletal Muscle Image Segmentation through Deep Hierarchically Connected Networks

Figure 4

Segmentation results of four sample skeletal muscle images. We show some very challenging cases with large appearance variances in color, fiber shape, etc. Each segmented fiber is overlaid with a distinctive colored mask while false positives and false negatives are highlighted by red and blue contours, respectively. Compared with the other two methods, our method obtains more fine-grained segmentation results with obviously less false prediction.
