In Proceedings of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine Annual Meeting.

The recent advancement in deep learning to recognize meaningful features from various forms of data opened the door to numerous applications in artificial intelligence (AI) for medical image analysis. However, to date, only the images carefully reconstructed from signals generated by image acquisition system can be utilized to build AI systems. In this study, we developed a deep learning system for human anatomy identification and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) detection using sinograms, a mathematical representation of projected ray-sums of Radon space, and compared its performance to the system based on reconstructed computed tomography (CT) images.
