Recent advancement of image understanding with deep learning neural networks has brought great attraction to those in image analysis into the focus of deep learning networks. While researchers on video/image analysis have jumped on the bandwagon of deep learning networks, medical image analyzers would be the coming followers. The characteristics of medical images are extremely different from those of photos and video images. The application of medical image analysis is also much more critical. For achieving the best effectiveness and feasibility of medical image analysis with deep learning approaches, several issues have to be considered. In this talk we will give a brief overview of the development of neural networks for medical image analysis in the past and the future trends with deep learning. Several issues in regard of the data preparation, techniques, and clinic applications will also be discussed.
