IterationMetric#

class monai.metrics.IterationMetric[source]#

Base class for metrics computation at the iteration level, that is, on a min-batch of samples usually using the model outcome of one iteration.

__call__ is designed to handle y_pred and y (optional) in torch tensors or a list/tuple of tensors.

Subclasses typically implement the _compute_tensor function for the actual tensor computation logic.

Cumulative#

class monai.metrics.Cumulative[source]#

Utility class for the typical cumulative computation process based on PyTorch Tensors. It provides interfaces to accumulate values in the local buffers, synchronize buffers across distributed nodes, and aggregate the buffered values.

In multi-processing, PyTorch programs usually distribute data to multiple nodes. Each node runs with a subset of the data, adds values to its local buffers. Calling get_buffer could gather all the results and aggregate can further handle the results to generate the final outcomes.

Users can implement their own aggregate method to handle the results, using get_buffer to get the buffered contents.

Note: the data list should have the same length every time calling add() in a round, it will automatically create buffers according to the length of data list.

Typically, this class is expected to execute the following steps:

from monai.metrics import Cumulative

c = Cumulative()
c.append(1)  # adds a value
c.extend([2, 3])  # adds a batch of values
c.extend([4, 5, 6])  # adds a batch of values
print(c.get_buffer())  # tensor([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
print(len(c))  # 6
c.reset()
print(len(c))  # 0

The following is an example of maintaining two internal buffers:

from monai.metrics import Cumulative

c = Cumulative()
c.append(1, 2)  # adds a value to two buffers respectively
c.extend([3, 4], [5, 6])  # adds batches of values
print(c.get_buffer())  # [tensor([1, 3, 4]), tensor([2, 5, 6])]
print(len(c))

The following is an example of extending with variable length data:

import torch
from monai.metrics import Cumulative

c = Cumulative()
c.extend(torch.zeros((8, 2)), torch.zeros((6, 2)))  # adds batches
c.append(torch.zeros((2, )))  # adds a value
print(c.get_buffer())  # [torch.zeros((9, 2)), torch.zeros((6, 2))]
print(len(c))
__init__()[source]#

Initialize the internal buffers. self._buffers are local buffers, they are not usually used directly. self._sync_buffers are the buffers with all the results across all the nodes.

abstract aggregate(*args, **kwargs)[source]#

Aggregate final results based on the gathered buffers. This method is expected to use get_buffer to gather the local buffer contents.

append(*data)[source]#

Add samples to the local cumulative buffers. A buffer will be allocated for each data item. Compared with self.extend, this method adds a single sample (instead of a “batch”) to the local buffers.

Parameters

data – each item will be converted into a torch tensor. they will be stacked at the 0-th dim with a new dimension when get_buffer() is called.

Return type

None

extend(*data)[source]#

Extend the local buffers with new (“batch-first”) data. A buffer will be allocated for each data item. Compared with self.append, this method adds a “batch” of data to the local buffers.

Parameters

data – each item can be a “batch-first” tensor or a list of “channel-first” tensors. they will be concatenated at the 0-th dimension when get_buffer() is called.

Return type

None

get_buffer()[source]#

Get the synchronized list of buffers. A typical usage is to generate the metrics report based on the raw metric details. Each buffer is a PyTorch Tensor.

reset()[source]#

Reset the buffers for cumulative tensors and the synced results.

CumulativeIterationMetric#

class monai.metrics.CumulativeIterationMetric[source]#

Base class of cumulative metric which collects metrics on each mini-batch data at the iteration level.

Typically, it computes some intermediate results for each iteration, adds them to the buffers, then the buffer contents could be gathered and aggregated for the final result when epoch completed. Currently,``Cumulative.aggregate()`` and IterationMetric._compute_tensor() are expected to be implemented.

For example, MeanDice inherits this class and the usage is as follows:

dice_metric = DiceMetric(include_background=True, reduction="mean")

for val_data in val_loader:
    val_outputs = model(val_data["img"])
    val_outputs = [postprocessing_transform(i) for i in decollate_batch(val_outputs)]
    # compute metric for current iteration
    dice_metric(y_pred=val_outputs, y=val_data["seg"])  # callable to add metric to the buffer

# aggregate the final mean dice result
metric = dice_metric.aggregate().item()

# reset the status for next computation round
dice_metric.reset()

And to load predictions and labels from files, then compute metrics with multi-processing, please refer to: Project-MONAI/tutorials.

LossMetric#

class monai.metrics.LossMetric(loss_fn, reduction=MetricReduction.MEAN, get_not_nans=False)[source]#

Example:

import torch
from monai.losses import DiceLoss
from monai.metrics import LossMetric

dice_loss = DiceLoss(include_background=True)
loss_metric = LossMetric(loss_fn=dice_loss)

# first iteration
y_pred = torch.tensor([[[[1.0, 0.0], [0.0, 1.0]]]])  # shape [batch=1, channel=1, 2, 2]
y = torch.tensor([[[[1.0, 0.0], [1.0, 1.0]]]])  # shape [batch=1, channel=1, 2, 2]
loss_metric(y_pred, y)

# second iteration
y_pred = torch.tensor([[[[1.0, 0.0], [0.0, 0.0]]]])  # shape [batch=1, channel=1, 2, 2]
y = torch.tensor([[[[1.0, 0.0], [1.0, 1.0]]]])  # shape [batch=1, channel=1, 2, 2]
loss_metric(y_pred, y)

# aggregate
print(loss_metric.aggregate(reduction="none"))  # tensor([[0.2000], [0.5000]]) (shape [batch=2, channel=1])

# reset
loss_metric.reset()
print(loss_metric.aggregate())

Surface dice#

monai.metrics.compute_surface_dice(y_pred, y, class_thresholds, include_background=False, distance_metric='euclidean')[source]#

This function computes the (Normalized) Surface Dice (NSD) between the two tensors y_pred (referred to as \(\hat{Y}\)) and y (referred to as \(Y\)). This metric determines which fraction of a segmentation boundary is correctly predicted. A boundary element is considered correctly predicted if the closest distance to the reference boundary is smaller than or equal to the specified threshold related to the acceptable amount of deviation in pixels. The NSD is bounded between 0 and 1.

This implementation supports multi-class tasks with an individual threshold \(\tau_c\) for each class \(c\). The class-specific NSD for batch index \(b\), \(\operatorname {NSD}_{b,c}\), is computed using the function:

(1)#\[\operatorname {NSD}_{b,c} \left(Y_{b,c}, \hat{Y}_{b,c}\right) = \frac{\left|\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}^{'}\right| + \left| \mathcal{D}_{\hat{Y}_{b,c}}^{'} \right|}{\left|\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}\right| + \left|\mathcal{D}_{\hat{Y}_{b,c}}\right|}\]

with \(\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}\) and \(\mathcal{D}_{\hat{Y}_{b,c}}\) being two sets of nearest-neighbor distances. \(\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}\) is computed from the predicted segmentation boundary towards the reference segmentation boundary and vice-versa for \(\mathcal{D}_{\hat{Y}_{b,c}}\). \(\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}^{'}\) and \(\mathcal{D}_{\hat{Y}_{b,c}}^{'}\) refer to the subsets of distances that are smaller or equal to the acceptable distance \(\tau_c\):

\[\mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}}^{'} = \{ d \in \mathcal{D}_{Y_{b,c}} \, | \, d \leq \tau_c \}.\]

In the case of a class neither being present in the predicted segmentation, nor in the reference segmentation, a nan value will be returned for this class. In the case of a class being present in only one of predicted segmentation or reference segmentation, the class NSD will be 0.

This implementation is based on https://arxiv.org/abs/2111.05408 and supports 2D images. Be aware that the computation of boundaries is different from DeepMind’s implementation deepmind/surface-distance. In this implementation, the length of a segmentation boundary is interpreted as the number of its edge pixels. In DeepMind’s implementation, the length of a segmentation boundary depends on the local neighborhood (cf. https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.04430).

Parameters
  • y_pred (Tensor) – Predicted segmentation, typically segmentation model output. It must be a one-hot encoded, batch-first tensor [B,C,H,W].

  • y (Tensor) – Reference segmentation. It must be a one-hot encoded, batch-first tensor [B,C,H,W].

  • class_thresholds (List[float]) – List of class-specific thresholds. The thresholds relate to the acceptable amount of deviation in the segmentation boundary in pixels. Each threshold needs to be a finite, non-negative number.

  • include_background (bool) – Whether to skip the surface dice computation on the first channel of the predicted output. Defaults to False.

  • distance_metric (str) – The metric used to compute surface distances. One of ["euclidean", "chessboard", "taxicab"]. Defaults to "euclidean".

Raises
  • ValueError – If y_pred and/or y are not PyTorch tensors.

  • ValueError – If y_pred and/or y do not have four dimensions.

  • ValueError – If y_pred and/or y have different shapes.

  • ValueError – If y_pred and/or y are not one-hot encoded

  • ValueError – If the number of channels of y_pred and/or y is different from the number of class thresholds.

  • ValueError – If any class threshold is not finite.

  • ValueError – If any class threshold is negative.

Returns

Pytorch Tensor of shape [B,C], containing the NSD values \(\operatorname {NSD}_{b,c}\) for each batch index \(b\) and class \(c\).

The class- and batch sample-wise NSD values can be aggregated with the function aggregate.

Example of the typical execution steps of this metric class follows monai.metrics.metric.Cumulative.

PanopticQualityMetric#

monai.metrics.compute_panoptic_quality(pred, gt, metric_name='pq', remap=True, match_iou_threshold=0.5, smooth_numerator=1e-06, output_confusion_matrix=False)[source]#

Computes Panoptic Quality (PQ). If specifying metric_name to “SQ” or “RQ”, Segmentation Quality (SQ) or Recognition Quality (RQ) will be returned instead.

In addition, if output_confusion_matrix is True, the function will return a tensor with shape 4, which represents the true positive, false positive, false negative and the sum of iou. These four values are used to calculate PQ, and returning them directly enables further calculation over all images.

Parameters

  • gt (Tensor) – ground truth. It must have the same shape as pred and have integer type.

  • metric_name (str) – output metric. The value can be “pq”, “sq” or “rq”.

  • match_iou_threshold (float) – IOU threshould to determine the pairing between pred and gt. Usually, it should >= 0.5, the pairing between instances of pred and gt are identical. If set match_iou_threshold < 0.5, this function uses Munkres assignment to find the maximal amout of unique pairing.

  • smooth_numerator (float) – a small constant added to the numerator to avoid zero.

Raises
  • ValueError – when pred and gt have different shapes.

  • ValueError – when match_iou_threshold <= 0.0 or > 1.0.

class monai.metrics.PanopticQualityMetric(num_classes, metric_name='pq', reduction=MetricReduction.MEAN_BATCH, match_iou_threshold=0.5, smooth_numerator=1e-06)[source]#

Compute Panoptic Quality between two instance segmentation masks. If specifying metric_name to “SQ” or “RQ”, Segmentation Quality (SQ) or Recognition Quality (RQ) will be returned instead.

Panoptic Quality is a metric used in panoptic segmentation tasks. This task unifies the typically distinct tasks of semantic segmentation (assign a class label to each pixel) and instance segmentation (detect and segment each object instance). Compared with semantic segmentation, panoptic segmentation distinguish different instances that belong to same class. Compared with instance segmentation, panoptic segmentation does not allow overlap and only one semantic label and one instance id can be assigned to each pixel. Please refer to the following paper for more details: https://openaccess.thecvf.com/content_CVPR_2019/papers/Kirillov_Panoptic_Segmentation_CVPR_2019_paper.pdf

  • metric_name (Union[Sequence[str], str]) – output metric. The value can be “pq”, “sq” or “rq”. Except for input only one metric, multiple metrics are also supported via input a sequence of metric names such as (“pq”, “sq”, “rq”).

monai.metrics.utils.get_mask_edges(seg_pred, seg_gt, label_idx=1, crop=True)[source]#

Do binary erosion and use XOR for input to get the edges. This function is helpful to further calculate metrics such as Average Surface Distance and Hausdorff Distance. The input images can be binary or labelfield images. If labelfield images are supplied, they are converted to binary images using label_idx.

scipy’s binary erosion is used to calculate the edges of the binary labelfield.

In order to improve the computing efficiency, before getting the edges, the images can be cropped and only keep the foreground if not specifies crop = False.

We require that images are the same size, and assume that they occupy the same space (spacing, orientation, etc.).

Parameters
  • seg_pred – the predicted binary or labelfield image.

  • seg_gt – the actual binary or labelfield image.

  • label_idx (int) – for labelfield images, convert to binary with seg_pred = seg_pred == label_idx.

  • crop (bool) – crop input images and only keep the foregrounds. In order to maintain two inputs’ shapes, here the bounding box is achieved by (seg_pred | seg_gt) which represents the union set of two images. Defaults to True.
