Ultrasound Nerve Segmentation

New @Kaggle #MachineLearning Competition: Ultrasound Nerve Segmentation  #DataScience

  • Pain management catheters reduce dependence on narcotics and speed up patient recovery.
  • Accurately identifying nerve structures in ultrasound images is a critical step in effectively inserting a patient’s pain management catheter.
  • The competition’s sponsor is working to improve pain management through the use of indwelling catheters that block or mitigate pain at the source.
  • In the competition, Kagglers are challenged to build a model that can identify nerve structures in a dataset of ultrasound images of the neck.
  • Patient pain is frequently managed through the use of narcotics that bring a bevy of unwanted side effects.
