Kaggle Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy Detection Challenge

Diabetic Retinopathy Detection Challenge

Today many Californians with diabetes do not get screened for diabetic retinopathy, a sight-threatening complication of the disease, due to the related costs and limited access. In the future this might change as researchers develop computer algorithms that could screen a retinal image for diabetic retinopathy as well as human clinicians, thereby making readings faster, more cost-effective, and potentially more accurate. To catalyze advancement in this field, CHCF partnered with Kaggle, a competition platform for predictive modeling and analytics. The Diabetic Retinopathy Detection competition drew on the expertise of computer scientists, statisticians, engineers, and data miners from all over the world. The top three teams used image classification, pattern recognition, and machine learning to develop automated diabetic retinopathy detection models that are each on par with human performance.

Machine Learning For Diabetic Retinopathy Detection

Machine Learning For Diabetic Retinopathy Detection

Machine Learning for Diabetic Retinopathy Detection Machine Learning Researcher & Engineer | Kaggle Master or What can modern networks learn from old algorithms I spent last month intensively competing in a Kaggles "Diabetic Retinopathy Detection" challenge . Joined this 4-month long challenge late, having limited access to GPU, I set my goal to implement fast yet powerful framework I learnt from a series of papers publishedby Andrew Ng , Professor at Stanford and his colleagues Adam Coates , PhD and Professor Honglak Lee . I very much enjoyed the competition and particularly the fact that I was able to confirm effectiveness of the approach and finished on 131st position out of 661 teams having made just few submissions. Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the working-age population of the developed world. Currently, detecting DR is a time-consuming and manual process that requires a trained clinician to examine and evaluate digital color fundus photographs of the retina. (from the competition description ). The clinical grading process consists of detection certain subtle features, such as microaneurysms, exudates, intra-retinal hemorrhages and sometimes their position relative to each other on images of the eye. OD at presentation with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Thin arrows: hard exudates; Thick arrow: blot intra-retinal hemorrhage; triangle: microaneurysm. Source The competition participants were provided with training and testing sets of high-resolution retina images (37 and 56 thousand respectively) taken under a variety of imaging conditions. A clinician has rated the presence of diabetic retinopathy in each training image on a scale of 0 (no DR) to 4 (proliferative DR).

Diabetic Retinopathy Winner's Interview: 1st Place, Ben Graham

Diabetic Retinopathy Winner's Interview: 1st Place, Ben Graham

Ben Graham finished at the top of the leaderboard in the high-profile Diabetic Retinopathy competition . In this blog, he shares his approach on a high-level with key takeaways. Ben finished 3rd in the National Data Science Bowl , a competition that helped develop many of the approaches used to compete in this challenge. What made you decide to enter this competition? I wanted to experiment with training CNNs with larger images to see what kind of architectures would work well. Medical images can in some ways be more challenging than classifying regular photos as the important features can be very small. What preprocessing and supervised learning methods did you use? For preprocessing, I first scaled the images to a given radius. I then subtracted local average color to reduce differences in lighting. For supervised learning, I experimented with convolutional neural network architectures. To map the network predictions to the integer labels needed for the competition, I used a random forest so that I could combine the data from the two eyes to make each prediction. Were you surprised by any of your findings? I was surprised by a couple of things. First, that increasing the scale of the images beyond radius=270 pixels did not seem to help. I was expecting the existence of very small features, only visible at higher resolutions, to tip the balance in favor of larger images. Perhaps the increase in processing times for larger images was too great. I was also surprised by the fact that ensembling (taking multiple views of each image, and combining the results of different networks) did very little to improve accuracy. This is rather different to the case of normal photographs, where ensembling can make a huge difference. Python and OpenCV for preprocessing. SparseConvNet f Continue reading >>

Automated Screening For Diabetic Retinopathy A Systematic Review

Automated Screening For Diabetic Retinopathy A Systematic Review

Automated Screening for Diabetic Retinopathy A Systematic Review aDepartment of Ophthalmology, Odense University Hospital, Odense, Denmark bResearch Unit of Ophthalmology, Department of Clinical Research, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark Department of Ophthalmology, Odense University Hospital Purpose: Worldwide ophthalmologists are challenged by the rapid rise in the prevalence of diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most common complication in diabetes, and possible consequences range from mild visual impairment to blindness. Repetitive screening for DR is cost-effective, but it is also a costly and strenuous affair. Several studies have examined the application of automated image analysis to solve this problem. Large populations are needed to assess the efficacy of such programs, and a standardized and rigorous methodology is important to give an indication of system performance in actual clinical settings. Methods: In a systematic review, we aimed to identify studies with methodology and design that are similar or replicate actual screening scenarios. A total of 1,231 publications were identified through PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase searches. Three manual search strategies were carried out to identify publications missed in the primary search. Four levels of screening identified 7 studies applicable for inclusion. Results: Seven studies were included. The detection of DR had high sensitivities (87.095.2%) but lower specificities (49.668.8%). False-negative results were related to mild DR with a low risk of progression within 1 year. Several studies reported missed cases of diabetic macular edema. A meta-analysis was not conducted as studies were not suitable for direct comparison or statistical analysis. Concl Continue reading >>

Detecting Diabetic Retinopathy In Eye Images

Detecting Diabetic Retinopathy In Eye Images

Detecting Diabetic Retinopathy in Eye Images The past almost four months I have been competing in a Kaggle competition about diabetic retinopathy grading based on high-resolution eye images. In this post I try to reconstruct my progression through the competition; the challenges I had, the things I tried, what worked and what didn't. This is not meant as a complete documentation but, nevertheless, some more concrete examples can be found at the end and certainly in the code . In the end I finished fifth of the almost 700 competing teams . Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of blindness in the working-age population of the developed world and is estimated to affect over 93 million people. (From the competition description where some more background information can be found.) The grading process consists of recognising very fine details, such as microaneurysms, to some bigger features, such as exudates, and sometimes their position relative to each other on images of the eye. (This is not an exhaustive list, you can look at, for example, the long list of criteria used in the UK to grade DR .) Some annotated examples from the literature to get an idea of what this really looks like (the medical details/terminology are not very important for the rest of this post): Example of non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR): Thin arrows: hard exudates; Thick arrow: blot intra-retinal hemorrhage; Triangle: microaneurysm. ( Source ) Some (sub)types of diabetic retinopathy. The competition grouped some together to get 5 ordered classes. ( Source ) Now let's look at it as someone who simply wants to try to model this problem. You have 35,126 images in the training set that look like this... Some pseudorandom samples from the training set. Notice the black borders and Continue reading >>

Diabetic Retinopathy Winners' Interview: 4th Place, Julian & Daniel

Diabetic Retinopathy Winners' Interview: 4th Place, Julian & Daniel

The Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) competition asked participants to identify different stages of the eye disease in color fundus photographsof the retina. The competition ran from February through July 2015 and the results were outstanding. By automating the early detection of DR, many more individuals will have access to diagnostic tools and treatment. Early detection of DR is key to slowing the disease's progression to blindness. Fourth place finishers, Julian De Wit and Daniel Hammack, share their approach here (including a simple recipe for using ConvNets on a noisy dataset). What was your background prior to entering this challenge? Julian De Wit:I studied software engineering at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands.I've always loved to implement complex (machine learing) algorithms.Nowadays I work as a freelancer and mainly do machine learning projects.I use Kaggle to battle-test ideas and try new algorithms and frameworks. Daniel Hammack:I have been involved in the machine learning field for a few years, starting with science fair in High School. I thought machine learning was pretty neat and mostly taught myself using the great resources online these days. Andrew Ng, Geoff Hinton, Steven Boyd, and Michael Collins all deserve a shoutout for having excellent lectures available online for free. Do you have any prior experience or domain knowledge that helped you succeed in this competition? Daniel:I had never done any image processing before, and also not worked with any medical data, so this competition was a great learning experience for me. I have been keeping up with the research on deep learning for computer vision, but I wanted the chance to try that knowledge out on some real data. Julian:I have always been following advances in Neural networks Continue reading >>

My 1st Kaggle ConvNet: Getting to 3rd Percentile in 3 months The Diabetic Retinopathy challenge on Kaggle has just finished. The goal of the competition was to predict the presence and severity of the disease Diabetic Retinopathy from photographs of eyes. I finished in 20th place using a Convolutional Neural Network (ConvNet). In this post Ill explain my learning process and progress as I implemented my first ConvNet over the last 3 months. Throughout, Ill link to the implementations in my code, which is available on github for anyone who wishes to replicate my score. My progress over all my 170+ experiments. See the Misc section at the end for a list of the improvements that each point represents here as written along the x-axis. Each point represents an experiment that set a personal record high (on a validation set) of the Kappa score that the competition is judged by. Each point contains a description of the change that caused the improvement (each improvement is accumulated over the experiments, i.e. later runs include all the past improvements). Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is one of the most significant complications of diabetes and is a leading cause of blindness. Early detection and treatment is essential for preventing blindness. Ophthalmologists can use a lens to look through the dilated pupils of a patient and see the retina at the back of the eyeball, looking for symptoms that indicate changes in blood vessels ( NIH ). At worst this means that new blood vessels are growing (proliferative DR or PDR) and disturbing the retina, otherwise the patient has non-proliferative DR (NPDR). For the challenge, there are 5 stages of DR severity that have symptoms (from here ): Mild NPDR, microaneurysms (red blotches) which are the source of hard exudate (high contrast yell Continue reading >>

Diabetic Retinal Fundus Images: Preprocessing And Feature Extraction For Early Detection Of Diabetic Retinopathy | Biomedical And Pharmacology Journal

Diabetic Retinal Fundus Images: Preprocessing and Feature Extraction for Early Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy Dilip Singh Sisodia, Shruti Nair and Pooja Khobragade National Institute of Technology, Raipur. Corresponding Author E-mail: [email protected] DOI : The investigation of clinical reports suggested that more than ten percent patients with diabetes have a high risk of eye issues. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is an eye ailment which influences eighty to eighty-five percent of the patients who have diabetes for more than ten years. The retinal fundus images are commonly used for detection and analysis of diabetic retinopathy disease in clinics. The raw retinal fundus images are very hard to process by machine learning algorithms. In this paper, pre-processing of raw retinal fundus images are performed using extraction of green channel, histogram equalization, image enhancement and resizing techniques. Fourteen features are also extracted from pre-processed images for quantitative analysis. The experiments are performed using Kaggle Diabetic Retinopathy dataset, and the results are evaluated by considering the mean value and standard deviation for extracted features. The result yielded exudate area as the best-ranked feature with a mean difference of 1029.7. The result attributed due to its complete absence in normal diabetic images and its simultaneous presence in the three classes of diabetic retinopathy images namely mild, normal and severe.

How To Get Started With The Diabetic Retinopathy Project

How To Get Started With The Diabetic Retinopathy Project

Head guy at @nomikxyz. Community Leader at @duckduckhack. How to get started with the Diabetic Retinopathy project A few months ago, I decided to begin work on my first machine learning project using Tensorflow, a powerful machine learning framework created by Google. Tensorflow, the uberamazing software package. (Courtesy of the Tensorflow website) What resulted was the Diabetic Retinopathy screening project , which can take a retinal image, run it through an algorithm, and give you a pretty good idea if an eye is showing signs of diabetic retinopathy , an ocular disease that manifests as a result of diabetes, and is one of the leading causes of blindness. A retinal image, much like the ones used in thisproject. In this post, I will walk you through a tutorial on what each file in the project does, and how to use it. All of the code in this project is written in Python, so make sure you know the basics of Python and Tensorflow before attempting this tutorial. Disclaimer: This project and software should not be used in a real world scenario. I am not a physician, and this is not going to definitively tell you whether you have an ocular disease. Dont be stupid, and dont trust your wellbeing or someone elses wellbeing in a random computer program you found online. Also, if you want to try out the algorithm behind this project without all the Python and stuff behind it, I would recommend you check out the retinopathy-server or retinopathy-desktop repositories, as they are much easier to use and require very minimal knowledge of Python. This is a gross oversimplification of how Tensorflow and machine learning works. If you want to know this works in detail, I suggest the Tensorflow for Poets tutorial by Google, which is available here: . The algorithm and files contained i Continue reading >>

Deep Learning For Detection Of Diabetic Eye Disease

Deep Learning For Detection Of Diabetic Eye Disease

Posted by Lily Peng MD PhD, Product Manager and Varun Gulshan PhD, Research Engineer Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the fastest growing cause of blindness, with nearly 415 million diabetic patients at risk worldwide. If caught early, the disease can be treated; if not, it can lead to irreversible blindness. Unfortunately, medical specialists capable of detecting the disease are not available in many parts of the world where diabetes is prevalent. We believe that Machine Learning can help doctors identify patients in need, particularly among underserved populations. A few years ago, several of us began wondering if there was a way Google technologies could improve the DR screening process, specifically by taking advantage of recent advances in Machine Learning and Computer Vision. In "Development and Validation of a Deep Learning Algorithm for Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy in Retinal Fundus Photographs", published today in JAMA, we present a deep learning algorithm capable of interpreting signs of DR in retinal photographs, potentially helping doctors screen more patients in settings with limited resources. One of the most common ways to detect diabetic eye disease is to have a specialist examine pictures of the back of the eye (Figure 1) and rate them for disease presence and severity. Severity is determined by the type of lesions present (e.g. microaneurysms, hemorrhages, hard exudates, etc), which are indicative of bleeding and fluid leakage in the eye. Interpreting these photographs requires specialized training, and in many regions of the world there aren’t enough qualified graders to screen everyone who is at risk. Working closely with doctors both in India and the US, we created a development dataset of 128,000 images which were each evaluated by 3-7 ophthalmo Continue reading >>

Deep learning is quickly becoming the leading methodology for medical image analysis. Given a large medical archive, where each image is associated with a diagnosis, efficient pathology detectors or classifiers can be trained with virtually no expert knowledge about the target pathologies. However, deep learning algorithms, including the popular ConvNets, are black boxes: little is known about the local patterns analyzed by ConvNets to make a decision at the image level. A solution is proposed in this paper to create heatmaps showing which pixels in images play a role in the image-level predictions. In other words, a ConvNet trained for image-level classification can be used to detect lesions as well. A generalization of the backpropagation method is proposed in order to train ConvNets that produce high-quality heatmaps. The proposed solution is applied to diabetic retinopathy (DR) screening in a dataset of almost 90,000 fundus photographs from the 2015 Kaggle Diabetic Retinopathy competiti Continue reading >>
