Sammanfattning: Using Convolutional Neural Networks for classification of images and for localization and detection of objects in images is becoming increasingly popular. Within radiology a huge amount of image data is produced and meta data containing information of what the images depict is currently added manually by a radiologist. To aid in streamlining physician’s workflow this study has investigated the possibility to use Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) that are pre-trained on natural images to automatically detect the presence and location of multiple organs and body-parts in medical CT images. The results show promise for multiclass classification with an average precision 89.41% and average recall 86.40%. This also confirms that a CNN that is pre-trained on natural images can be succesfully transferred to solve a different task. It was also found that adding additional data to the dataset does not necessarily result in increased precision and recall or decreased error rate. It is rather the type of data and used preprocessing techniques that matter.
