In this paper, we present a Unet architecture made of octave convolution for dental image segmentation problem. In this architecture, the requirements for memory and accuracy are significantly improved compared to previous works in the literature. Compare to state-of-art models on this topic the classification accuracy in dental image segmentation is increased by %2, and the memory usage is decreased by %70. Suggested architecture showed a performance of success on 15B12015 dataset.
