    (Color online) The overall architecture of the proposed FClassNet comprising three modules. (a) module contains the backbone network. (b) module performs orientation field estimation and segmentation using two UNets, and (c) module performs hybrid classification combining the orientation-field-based end-to-end classification and singular-point-based classification rules.
