Why X-ray (Radiography)
It usually takes less than 15 minutes for an entire X-ray procedure.
X-ray images are digital, so a doctor can see them on a screen within minutes.
We will use ResNet-50 network in this example as it has proven to be highly effective for various medical imaging applications
ResNet-50 is a convolutional neural network that is 50 layers deep.
ResNet, short for Residual Networks is a classic neural network used as a backbone for many computer vision tasks.
This model was the winner of ImageNet challenge in 2015.
You can load a pretrained version of the network trained on more than a million images.
