Spatio-Temporal Visual Attention Modelling of Standard Biometry Plane-Finding Navigation

We present a novel multi-task neural network called Temporal SonoEyeNet (TSEN) with a primary task to describe the visual navigation process of sonographers by learning to generate visual attention maps of ultrasound images around standard biometry …

Captioning Ultrasound Images Automatically

We describe an automatic natural language processing (NLP)-based image captioning method to describe fetal ultrasound video content by modelling the vocabulary commonly used by sonographers and sonologists. The generated captions are similar to the …

Towards Capturing Sonographic Experience: Cognition-Inspired Ultrasound Video Saliency Prediction

For visual tasks like ultrasound (US) scanning, experts direct their gaze towards regions of task-relevant information. Therefore, learning to predict the gaze of sonographers on US videos captures the spatio-temporal patterns that are important for …

Ultrasound Image Representation Learning by Modeling Sonographer Visual Attention

Image representations are commonly learned from class labels, which are a simplistic approximation of human image understanding. In this paper we demonstrate that transferable representations of images can be learned without manual annotations by …

Multi-task SonoEyeNet: Detection of Fetal Standardized Planes Assisted by Generated Sonographer Attention Maps

We present a novel multi-task convolutional neural network called Multi-task SonoEyeNet (M-SEN) that learns to generate clinically relevant visual attention maps using sonographer gaze tracking data on input ultrasound (US) video frames so as to …

SonoEyeNet: Standardized fetal ultrasound plane detection informed by eye tracking

We present a novel automated approach for detection of standardized abdominal circumference (AC) planes in fetal ultrasound built in a convolutional neural network (CNN) framework, called SonoEyeNet, that utilizes eye movement data of a sonographer …
