Biomedical Image Processing, such as human organ segmentation and disease analysis, is a modern field in medicine development and patient treatment. Besides there are many kinds of image formats, the diversity and complexity of biomedical data is still a big issue to all of researchers in their applications. In order to deal with the problem, deep learning give us a successful and effective solutions. Unet and LSTM are two general approaches to the most of case of medical image data. While Unet helps to teach a machine in learning data from each image accompanied with its labelled information, LSTM helps to remember states from many slices of images by times. Unet gives us the segmentation of tumor, abnormal things from biomedical images and then the LSTM gives us the effective diagnosis on a patient disease. In this paper, we show some scenarios of using Unets and LSTM to segment and analysis on many kinds of human organ images and results of brain, retinal, skin, lung and breast segmentation.
