Hypothesis: Deep learning (DL) algorithms, in particular convolutional neural networks (CNNs), have recently been used to address a number of medical-imaging problems, such as pneumonia detection using chest X-ray, and determining the aggressiveness prostate cancer using magnetic resonance images (MRI). They have become the technique of choice in computer vision and they are the most successful type of model for image analysis.
