Assessing the structure and function of organelles in living organisms of the primitive unicellular red algae Cyanidioschyzon merolae on three-dimensional sequential images demands a reliable automated technique in the class imbalance among various cellular structures during mitosis. Existing classification networks with commonly used loss functions were focused on larger numbers of cellular structures that lead to the unreliability of the system. Hence, we proposed a balanced deep regularized weighted compound dice loss (RWCDL) network for better localization of cell organelles. Specifically, we introduced two new loss functions, namely compound dice (CD) and RWCD by implementing multi-class variant dice and weighting mechanism, respectively for maximizing weights of peroxisome and nucleus among five classes as the main contribution of this study. We extended the Unet-like convolution neural network (CNN) architecture for evaluating the ability of our proposed loss functions for improved segmentation. The feasibility of the proposed approach is confirmed with three different large scale mitotic cycle data set with different number of occurrences of cell organelles. In addition, we compared the training behavior of our designed architectures with the ground truth segmentation using various performance measures. The proposed balanced RWCDL network generated the highest area under the curve (AUC) value in elevating the small and obscure peroxisome and nucleus, which is 30% higher than the network with commonly used mean square error (MSE) and dice loss (DL) functions. The experimental results indicated that the proposed approach can efficiently identify the cellular structures, even when the contour between the cells is obscure and thus convinced that the balanced deep RWCDL approach is reliable and can be helpful for biologist to accurately identify the relationship between the cell behavior and structures of cell organelles during mitosis.
