    Automated Clinical Decision Support for Coronary Plaques Characterization from Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging with Fused Neural Networks

    Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are nurturing clinical decision support systems for the detection and accurate modeling of coronary arterial plaques. However, efficient plaque characterization in time-constrained settings is still an open problem. The purpose of this study is to develop a novel automated classification architecture viable for the real-time clinical detection and classification of coronary artery plaques, and secondly, to use the novel dataset of OCT images for data augmentation. Further, the purpose is to validate the efficacy of transfer learning for arterial plaques classification. In this perspective, a novel time-efficient classification architecture based on DNNs is proposed. A new ...
