The authors of this study aimed to assess the performance of a convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm to register cross-sectional liver imaging series and its performance to manual image registration. The study included three hundred fourteen patients who underwent gadoxetate disodium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and were retrospectively selected.

Key points

  • Image registration across series can improve lesion co-localization and reader confidence
  • Combining convolutional neural network-based segmentation with affine transformations created a fully automated three-dimensional registration method for magnetic resonance images of the liver
  • This algorithm improved liver overlap and focal liver observation co-localization over standard manual registration.
