This collection contains prostate’s zonal segmentation for 98 cases randomly selected from the SPIE-AAPM-NCI PROSTATEx Challenges (PROSTATEx). The four-class segmentation encompasses the peripheral zone, transition zone, fibromuscular stroma and the distal prostatic urethra. As underlying images, we used transversal T2w scans. Segmentations were created by a medical student with experience in prostate segmentation and an expert urologist who instructed the student and double-checked the segmentations in the end. The DICOM representation of these segmentations were generated with dcmqi.
