TriMix: A General Framework for Medical Image Segmentation from Limited Supervision
We present a general framework for medical image segmentation from limited supervision, reducing the reliance on fully and densely labeled data. Our method is simple, jointly trains triple diverse models, and adopts a mix augmentation scheme, and thus is called TriMix. TriMix imposes consistency under a more challenging perturbation, i.e., combining data augmentation and model diversity on the tri-training framework. This straightforward strategy enables TriMix to serve as a strong and general learner learning from limited supervision using different kinds of imperfect labels. We conduct extensive experiments to show TriMix's generic purpose for semi- and weakly-supervised segmentation tasks. Compared to task-specific state-of-the-arts, TriMix achieves competitive performance and sometimes surpasses them by a large margin. The code is available at https://github.com/MoriLabNU/TriMix.
