One of the major challenges in deep learning is retrieving sufficiently large labeled training datasets, which can become expensive and time consuming to collect. A unique approach to training segmentation is to use Deep Neural Network (DNN) models with a minimal amount of initial labeled training samples. The procedure involves creating synthetic data and using image registration to calculate affine transformations to apply to the synthetic data. The method takes a small dataset and generates a highquality augmented reality synthetic dataset with strong variance while maintaining consistency with real cases. Results illustrate segmentation improvements in various target features and increased average target confidence.
