Cancer Imaging Archive – A gold mine

The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) is a service which de-identifies and holds a large archival of medical images of cancer available free for public download.

The data are organized as “collections”; typically patients’ imaging related by a common disease (e.g. lung cancer), image modality or type (MRI, CT, digital histopathology, etc) or research focus. DICOM is the primary file format used by TCIA for radiology imaging. Supporting data related to the images such as patient outcomes, treatment details, genomics and expert analyses are also provided when available.
