Abstract

In this paper, we focus on semi-supervised learning for biomedical image segmentation, so as to take advantage of huge unlabelled data. We observe that there usually exist some homogeneous connected areas of low confidence in biomedical images, which tend to confuse the classifier trained with limited labelled samples. To cope with this difficulty, we propose to construct forest oriented super pixels(voxels) to augment the standard random forest classifier, in which super pixels(voxels) are built upon the forest based code. Compared to the state-of-the-art, our proposed method shows superior segmentation performance on challenging 2D/3D biomedical images. The full implementation (based on Matlab) is available at https://github.com/lingucv/ssl_superpixels.
