About TCIA: TCIA is an open resource that acquires and stores clinical radiology and pathology images along with follow-up clinical data. De-identified data is hosted on the TCIA site and will be made available as a community resource for researchers. The data are organized as “Collections”, typically patients related by a common disease (e.g. lung cancer), image modality (MRI, CT, etc) or research focus. DICOM is the primary file format used by TCIA for image storage. Supporting data related to the images such as patient outcomes, treatment details, genomics, pathology, and expert analyses are also provided when available.
