A definite trend in Biomedical Imaging is the one towards the integration of increasingly complex interpretative layers to the pure data acquisition process. One of the most interesting and looked-forward goals in the field is the automatic segmentation of objects of interest in extensive acquisition data, target that would allow Biomedical Imaging to look beyond its use as a purely assistive tool to become a cornerstone in ambitious large-scale challenges like the extensive quantitative study of the Human Brain. In 2019 Convolutional Neural Networks represent the state of the art in Biomedical Image segmentation and scientific interests from a variety of fields, spacing from automotive to natural resource exploration, converge to their development. While most of the applications of CNNs are focused on single-image segmentation, biomedical image data -being it MRI, CT-scans, Microscopy, etc- often benefits from three-dimensional volumetric expression. This work explores a reformulation of the CNN segmentation problem that is native to the 3D nature of the data, with particular interest to the applications to Fluorescence Microscopy volumetric data produced at the European Laboratories for Nonlinear Spectroscopy in the context of two different large international human brain study projects: the Human Brain Project and the White House BRAIN Initiative.
