Deep learning convolution neural networks have proved to be a powerful tool for MRI analysis. In current work, we explore the potential of the deformable convolution deep neural network layers for MRI data classiļ¬cation. We propose new 3D deformable convolutions (d-convolutions), implement them in VoxResNet architecture and apply for structural MRI data classification. We show that 3D d-convolutions outperform standard ones and are effective for unprocessed 3D MR images being robust to particular geometrical properties of the data. Firstly proposed dVoxResNet architecture exhibits high potential for the use in MRI data classification.
