Abstract

Colorectal cancer is one of the main causes of cancer death worldwide. Early detection of its precursor lesion, the polyp, is key to ensure patient survival. Despite its gold standard status, colonoscopy presents some drawbacks such as polyp misses. While several computer-based solutions in this direction have been proposed, there is no available solution tackling lesion detection, localization and segmentation at once. We present in this paper a one-shot solution to characterize polyps in colonoscopy images. Our method uses a fully convolutional neural network model for semantic segmentation. Next, we apply transfer learning to provide detection and localization. We tested our method on several public datasets showing promising results, including compliance with technical and clinical requirements needed for an efficient deployment in the exploration room.
