Visualizing DenseNet Using PyTorch

Deep learning (DL) models have been performing exceptionally well on a number of challenging tasks lately. Unfortunately, given the current blackbox nature of these DL models, it is difficult to try and “understand” what the network is seeing and how it is making its decisions. Building upon our previous post discussing how to train a DenseNet for classification, we discuss here how to apply various visualization techniques to enable us to interrogate the network. The code here is designed as drop-in functionality for any network trained using the previous post, hopefully easing the burden of its implementation.

Digital pathology classification using Pytorch + Densenet

In this blog post, we discuss how to train a DenseNet style deep learning classifier, using Pytorch, for differentiating between different types of lymphoma cancer. This post and code are based on the post discussing segmentation using U-Net and is thus broken down into the same 4 components:

  1. Making training/testing databases,
  2. Training a model,
  3. Visualizing results in the validation set,
  4. Generating output.

Revised Deep Learning approach using Matlab + Caffe + Python

Our publication “Deep learning for digital pathology image analysis: A comprehensive tutorial with selected use cases” , showed how to use deep learning to address many common digital pathology tasks. Since then, many improvements have been made both in the field and in my implementation of them. In this blog post, I re-address the nuclei segmentation use case using the latest and greatest approaches.

Use Case 4: Lymphocyte Detection

Typically, you’ll want to use a validation set to determine an optimal threshold as it is often not .5 (which is equivalent to argmax). Subsequently, use this threshold on the the “_prob” image to generate a binary image.This blog posts explains how to train a deep learning lymphocyte detector in accordance with our paper “Deep learning for digital pathology image analysis: A comprehensive tutorial with selected use cases”.
