The Cancer Imaging Archive

Additional Comments: The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) is a service which de-identifies and hosts a large archive of medical images of cancer accessible for public download. TCIA organizes and catalogs the images so that they may be used by the research community for a variety of purposes. 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. Supporting data related to the images such as patient outcomes, treatment details, genomics and expert analyses are also provided when available. TCIA is funded by the National Cancer Institute. Most of the data sets in TCIA are accessible to all users but a few collections require a password. There are over 5,000 whole slide images and many more radiology images. The whole slide images can be viewed in a browser or downloaded as SVS files for research purposes. To view pathology images, type in “pathology” into the filter table field on the home page (see red arrow in above image). Click on an image set, and then click on the yellow search button to view images using a browser. SVS files can also be downloaded. A good case set to use to familiarize yourself with the site is the melanoma collection.
