SubpixelUpsample
(dimensions, in_channels, out_channels=None, scale_factor=2, conv_block='default', apply_pad_pool=True, bias=True)[source]¶ Upsample via using a subpixel CNN. This module supports 1D, 2D and 3D input images. The module is consisted with two parts. First of all, a convolutional layer is employed to increase the number of channels into:
in_channels * (scale_factor ** dimensions)
. Secondly, a pixel shuffle manipulation is utilized to aggregates the feature maps from low resolution space and build the super resolution space. The first part of the module is not fixed, a sequential layers can be used to replace the default single layer.See: Shi et al., 2016, “RealTime Single Image and Video SuperResolution Using a nEfficient SubPixel Convolutional Neural Network.”
See: Aitken et al., 2017, “Checkerboard artifact free subpixel convolution”.
The idea comes from: https://arxiv.org/abs/1609.05158

Layers¶
Factories¶
Defines factories for creating layers in generic, extensible, and dimensionally independent ways. A separate factory object is created for each type of layer, and factory functions keyed to names are added to these objects. Whenever a layer is requested the factory name and any necessary arguments are passed to the factory object. The return value is typically a type but can be any callable producing a layer object.
The factory objects contain functions keyed to names converted to upper case, these names can be referred to as members of the factory so that they can function as constant identifiers. eg. instance normalisation is named Norm.INSTANCE.
For example, to get a transpose convolution layer the name is needed and then a dimension argument is provided which is passed to the factory function:
dimension = 3
name = Conv.CONVTRANS
conv = Conv[name, dimension]
This allows the dimension value to be set in the constructor, for example so that the dimensionality of a network is parameterizable. Not all factories require arguments after the name, the caller must be aware which are required.
Defining new factories involves creating the object then associating it with factory functions:
fact = LayerFactory()
@fact.factory_function('test')
def make_something(x, y):
# do something with x and y to choose which layer type to return
return SomeLayerType
...
# request object from factory TEST with 1 and 2 as values for x and y
layer = fact[fact.TEST, 1, 2]
Typically the caller of a factory would know what arguments to pass (ie. the dimensionality of the requested type) but can be parameterized with the factory name and the arguments to pass to the created type at instantiation time:
def use_factory(fact_args):
fact_name, type_args = split_args
layer_type = fact[fact_name, 1, 2]
return layer_type(**type_args)
...
kw_args = {'arg0':0, 'arg1':True}
layer = use_factory( (fact.TEST, kwargs) )

Adapted from lsqshr’s official code. Except from the original network that supports 3D inputs, this implementation also supports 2D inputs. According to the tests for deconvolutions, using

mode, the input size of the firstdim1
dimensions should be divisible by 2 ** (psp_block_num + 3) and no less than 32. For other modes, the input size of the firstdim1
dimensions should be divisible by 32 and no less than 2 ** (psp_block_num + 3). In addition, at least one dimension should have a no less than 64 size. Parameters

(arg: OrderedDict[str, Module]) Plain fullconnected layer neural network
The network uses dropout and, by default, PReLU activation
Defines a network accept input with in_channels channels, output of out_channels channels, and hidden layers with channels given in hidden_channels. If bias is True then linear units have a bias term.
Generator¶

class
monai.networks.nets.
Generator
(latent_shape, start_shape, channels, strides, kernel_size=3, num_res_units=2, act='PRELU', norm='INSTANCE', dropout=None, bias=True)[source]¶ Defines a simple generator network accepting a latent vector and through a sequence of convolution layers constructs an output tensor of greater size and high dimensionality. The method _get_layer is used to create each of these layers, override this method to define layers beyond the default Convolution or ResidualUnit layers.
For example, a generator accepting a latent vector if shape (42,24) and producing an output volume of shape (1,64,64) can be constructed as:
gen = Generator((42, 24), (64, 8, 8), (32, 16, 1), (2, 2, 2))
Construct the generator network with the number of layers defined by channels and strides. In the forward pass a nn.Linear layer relates the input latent vector to a tensor of dimensions start_shape, this is then fed forward through the sequence of convolutional layers. The number of layers is defined by the length of channels and strides which must match, each layer having the number of output channels given in channels and an upsample factor given in strides (ie. a transpose convolution with that stride size).

class
monai.networks.nets.
Regressor
(in_shape, out_shape, channels, strides, kernel_size=3, num_res_units=2, act='PRELU', norm='INSTANCE', dropout=None, bias=True)[source]¶ This defines a network for relating largesized input tensors to small output tensors, ie. regressing large values to a prediction. An output of a single dimension can be used as value regression or multilabel classification prediction, an output of a single value can be used as a discriminator or critic prediction.
Construct the regressor network with the number of layers defined by channels and strides. Inputs are first passed through the convolutional layers in the forward pass, the output from this is then pass through a fully connected layer to relate them to the final output tensor.
