The purpose of this retrospective study was to develop and evaluate the performance of U-Net to determine whether U-Net-based deep learning could accurately perform fully automated localization and segmentation of cervical tumors in MR images, as well as the robustness of extracting apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) radiomics features.

Key points

  • U-Net-based deep learning can perform accurate fully automated localization and segmentation of cervical cancer in diffusion-weighted MR images.
  • Combining b0, b1000, and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) images exhibited the highest accuracy in fully automated localization.
  • First-order radiomics feature extraction from whole tumor volume was robust and could thus potentially be used for longitudinal monitoring of treatment responses.
