A pre-trained densenet121 model for disease pattern detection in chest x-rays.
The model is trained using a densenet121 model  for disease pattern detection in chest x-rays .
This model is trained using PLCO training data and evaluated on the PLCO validation data.
You can apply for access to the dataset at: https://biometry.nci.nih.gov/cdas/learn/plco/images/
The provided training configuration required 12GB-memory GPUs. The training was performed with command train.sh, which required 12GB-memory GPUs.
