The encoder-decoder structure have demonstrated encouraging progress in biomedical image segmentation. Nevertheless, there are still many challenges related to the segmentation of stroke lesions, including dealing with diverse lesion locations, variations in lesion scales, and fuzzy lesion boundaries. In order to address these challenges, this paper proposes a deep neural network architecture denoted as the Multi-Scale Deep Fusion Network (MSDF-Net) with Atrous Spatial Pyramid Pooling (ASPP) for the feature extraction at different scales, and the inclusion of capsules to deal with complicated relative entities. Experimental results shows that the proposed model achieved a higher evaluating score compared to 5 models.
