Explaining a deep learning based breast ultrasound image classifier with saliency maps

Deep neural networks have achieved good performance in breast mass classification in ultrasound imaging. However, their usage in clinical practice is still limited due to the lack of explainability of decisions conducted by the networks. In this study, to address the explainability problem, we generated saliency maps indicating ultrasound image regions important for the network’s classification decisions.

Summary of meta-analyses of studies involving TIRADS classifications (EU-TIRADS, ACR-TIRADS, and K-TIRADS) in evaluating the malignant potential of focal lesions of the thyroid gland

In this publication, the three most popular TIRADS classifications, European – EU-TIRADS, Korean – K-TIRADS, and developed by the American Society of Radiology – ACR-TIRADS, are presented and discussed based on a literature review. The results of available head-to-head statistical analyses comparing the classifications are also presented.
