Classification of Gastric Cancer based on Teacher-attention Distillation and Improved Dual-path Network

Chenchao Huang, Wei Peng, Kun Yu, Wenzhi Bao

Abstract— Early discovery of gastric cancer plays an important role in the clinical prognosis of gastric cancer. In recent years, using deep learning to classify CT medical images effectively improves the accuracy and efficiency of classification. But traditional deep learning models lack the ability to learn rich contextual information from CT data. This paper aims to explore the way that use weakly label area image to improve the accuracy of classification of gastric CT (Computer Tomography, CT) image differentiation. We propose a new model structure that combines improved dual-path network (DPN) to reuse and mine new image features´╝î and uses teacher attention distillation to encode rich contextual information. Combining our contributions, we are able to achieve most 0.8135 AUC. The overall results show better AUC performance than the state-of-the-art.
