Fetal pose estimation could play an important role in fetal motion tracking or automatic fetal slice prescription by real-time adjustments of the prescribed imaging orientation based on fetal pose and motion patterns. In this abstract, we used a multiple image scale deep reinforcement learning method (DQN) to train an agent finding the target landmark of fetal pose by optimizing searching policy based on landmark features and its surroundings. Under an error tolerance of 15-mm, the detection accuracy reaches 58%.
