Video-based Computer-aided Laparoscopic Bleeding Management: a Space-time Memory Neural Network with Positional Encoding and Adversarial Domain Adaptation
Navid Rabbani, Callyane Seve, Nicolas Bourdel, Adrien Bartoli
One of the main challenges in laparoscopic procedures is handling intraoperative bleeding. We propose video-based Computer-aided Laparoscopic Bleeding Management (CALBM) for early detection and management of intraoperative bleeding. Our system performs the online video-based segmentation of bleeding sources and displays them to the surgeon. It hinges on an improved space-time memory network, which we train from real and semi-synthetic data, using adversarial domain adaptation. Our system improves the IoU and F-Score from 69.97% to 73.40% and 50.23% to 58.09% in comparison to the baseline space-time memory network. It is far better than the prior CALBM systems based on still images, which we reimplemented with DeepLabV3+, reaching an IoU and F-Score of 65.86% and 43.19%. The improvement is also supported by user evaluation.
