With advances in biomedical imaging, the amount of data generated is increasing in biomedical engineering. For example, data can be generated by multimodality image techniques, e.g. ranging from Optical Imaging, Infrared thermography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasound, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography, and Positron Emission Tomography, to Magnetic Particle Imaging, EE/MEG, Bioluminescence imaging, Optical Microscopy and Tomography, Photoacoustic Tomography, Non-contact thermography, Electron Tomography, and Atomic Force Microscopy, etc. This poses a great challenge on how to develop new computational models for efficient data processing, analysis and modelling in clinical applications and in understanding the underlying biological process. Deep learning (DL) is a rapidly advancing computational model in recent years, in terms of both methodological development and practical applications. It allows computational models of multiple processing layers to learn and represent data with multiple levels of abstraction. It is able to implicitly capture intricate structures of largescale data and ideally suited to some of the hardware architectures that are currently available. The focus of this special session is to share research/review articles which focus on the biomedical image analysis via the recent Deep learning methods. This Special Session also intends to bring new DL algorithm with innovative ideas and find out the core problems in biomedical image analysis.
