In this study, the authors developed a deep feature fusion model (DFFM) in order to segment postoperative gliomas on CT images, which were guided by multi-sequence MRIs. The authors found that DFFM enabled accurate segmentation of CT postoperative gliomas, which may help to improve radiotherapy planning.
- A fully automated deep learning method was developed to segment postoperative gliomas on CT images guided by multi-sequence MRIs.
- CT and multi-sequence MR image integration allows for improvements in deep learning postoperative glioma segmentation method.
- This deep feature fusion model produces reliable segmentation results and could be useful in delineating GTV in postoperative glioma radiotherapy planning.
