89. Deep learning for computer-assisted perinatal care

Szymon Płotka – Health Informatics Team, Sano Centre for Computational Science, Krakow, PL


Perinatal medicine is a branch of medicine that specializes in the care of women during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as the care of newborns.

In this seminar, I will demonstrate how deep learning-based methods can be useful to address limitations in perinatal care. In particular, I will talk about fetal birth weight estimation using ultrasound video scans and fetoscopic laser surgery to cure Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS).
