AbstractWe propose a novel approach to automatically recognize the presence of surgical tools in surgical videos, which is quite challenging due to the large variation and partially appearance of surgical tools, the complicated surgical scenes, and the co-occurrence of some tools in the same frame. Inspired by human visual attention mechanism, which first orients and selects some important visual cues and then carefully analyzes these focuses of attention, we propose to first leverage a global prediction network to obtain a set of visual attention maps and a global prediction for each tool, and then harness a local prediction network to predict the presence of tools based on these attention maps. We apply a gate function to obtain the final prediction results by balancing the global and the local predictions. The proposed attention-guided network (AGNet) achieves state-of-the-art performance on m2cai16-tool dataset and surpasses the winner in 2016 by a significant margin.
