Featured article: MIScnn: a framework for medical image segmentation with convolutional neural networks and deep learning

The increased availability and usage of modern medical imaging induced a strong need for automatic medical image segmentation. In this Software article, Müller & Kramer introduce the open-source Python library MIScnn. The framework enables researchers to rapidly set up a complete medical image segmentation pipeline by using just a few lines of code.

Featured article: COVID-19 lung CT image segmentation using deep learning methods: U-Net versus SegNet

Saood and Hatem investigate two structurally-different deep learning techniques, SegNet and U-NET, for semantically segmenting COVID-19 infected tissue regions in CT lung images. They propose that the computer-based techniques may prove as reliable detectors for infected tissue in lung CT scans.

Featured article: Universal adversarial attacks on deep neural networks for medical image classification

Hirano et al focus on three representative deep neural network-based medical image classification tasks and investigate their vulnerability to the seven model architectures of universal adversarial perturbations.
