Age and gender classification with bone images using deep learning algorithms

Sathyavathi Sundarasamy, Baskaran Kuttuva Rajendran


In paediatrics, bone age is a crucial indicator of how a child's skeleton is developing. They have had great success ever since the creation of deep learning (DL)-based bone age prediction tools. Deep features learning, however, has a significant computing overhead problem. Deep convolution layers are used in this technique to learn representative features in the small yet useful regions that are extracted for feature learning. This work suggests using an extreme learning machine algorithm as the fundamental architecture in the final bone age assessment study to realise the rapid computation speed and feature interaction. The viability and efficacy of the suggested strategy have been verified by experiments using data that is openly accessible. The suggested model is explicitly trained using a cutting-edge end-to-end learning architecture employing bone scans to extract the most discriminative patches from the original high-resolution image. The bone picture is the foundation of the procedure. Our main objective is to categorize individuals by age using convolution neural network (CNN) classification models, such as the Xception and Mobile Net models. As a result, we have achieved results that are 90% and 94% accurate in classifying people by age using CNN models.
