Researchers from New York University's Tandon School of Engineering and Germany's University Hospital Bonn applied a new segmentation network trained by point annotations and synthetically produced image-segmentation pairs to microscopy images.
The framework translates the point annotations into synthetic masks limited by shape information, then uses an advanced generative model to render the masks as realistic microscopic images with consistent object appearance.
The final stage combines the masks and images into a training dataset for a specialized image segmentation model.
The approach yielded more diverse and realistic images than conventional techniques, while supporting linkage between input annotations and generated images when tested on a publicly available dataset.
