    Dermal Epidermal Junction Detection for Full-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Data of Human Skin by Deep Learning

    Full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) has been developed to obtain three-dimensional (3D) OCT data of human skin for early diagnosis of skin cancer. Detection of dermal epidermal junction (DEJ), where melanomas and basal cell carcinomas originate, is an essential step for skin cancer diagnosis. However, most existing DEJ detection methods consider each cross-sectional frame of the 3D OCT data independently, leaving the relationship between neighboring frames unexplored. In this paper, we exploit the continuity of 3D OCT data to enhance DEJ detection. In particular, we propose a method for noise reduction of the training data and a multi-directional convolutional neural ...
