Due to inflammation of the middle ear, various deformations occur in the eardrum. In order to diagnose the disease, it is necessary to examine the tympanic membrane in detail with an otoscope. In recent years, deep learning has been applied in many areas including biomedical field and very effective results have been achieved. Deep learning based methods are used successfully in automatic object detection. In this study, a deep learning based object detection method namely You Only Look Once (YOLO), is used for automatic detection of tympanic membrane in eardrum images obtained using otoscope device. To enable automatic detection of tympanic membrane by YOLO, experimental studies were conducted with AlexNet, VGGNet, GoogLeNet and ResNet. According to the performance results, the most efficient results were obtained with ResNet and VGGNet architectures. Tympanic membrane region detection with YOLO, was performed with an accuracy rate of 93%.

Orta kulak iltihabından dolayı kulak zarında çeşitli deformasyonlar meydana gelmektedir. Hastalığın teşhis edilebilmesi için otoskop cihazı ile kulağa bakıldığı zaman zar bölgesine erişilmesi ve detaylı bir şekilde kulak zarının incelenmesi gerekmektedir. Son yıllarda derin öğrenme birçok alanda uygulanmış ve oldukça etkili sonuçlar elde edilmiştir. Derin öğrenmenin biyomedikal alanda da sık bir şekilde kullanıldığı ve oldukça iyi neticelere varıldığı bilinmektedir. Otomatik nesne tanımlamada da derin öğrenme tabanlı yöntemler başarılı bir şekilde kullanılmaktadır. Bu çalışmada otoskop cihazı ile elde edilen orta kulak imgelerinde zar bölgesinin otomatik tespiti için derin öğrenme tabanlı nesne algılama yöntemi olan YOLO kullanılmıştır. YOLO yöntemi ile ilgili alanın otomatik olarak tespit edilmesini sağlamak üzere, nesne önerileri için evrişimsel sinir ağı mimarilerinden olan AlexNet, VGGNet, GoogLeNet, ve ResNet ile deneysel çalışmalar yapılmıştır. Performans sonuçlarına göre ResNet ve VGGNet mimarileri ile en verimli sonuçlar elde edilmiştir. YOLO ile zar bölgesinin tespiti %93 başarı oranı ile tespit edildi.
