TCIA hosts high quality imaging data sets from pediatric cancers as part of its support of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) goal to “build a community of pediatric cancer researchers, advocates, families, hospitals, and networks committed to sharing data to improve treatments, quality of life, and survivorship of every child with cancer.“
It is hoped that the availability of these datasets will help advance the knowledge of pediatric oncology for better patient outcomes. TCIA is actively collaborating with the CCDI Data Catalog team to ensure discoverability of TCIA datasets as new ones are added.
TCIA is hosting imaging datasets from the NCI Clinical Trial Network Children’s Oncology Group clinical trials, to which tumor annotations are being generated and published. Each annotation dataset includes radiologist-reviewed 3D tumor segmentations and seed points identifying the tumors, with tumor volume calculations included for each segmented tumor. Additional community-submitted pediatric datasets are also included in the table below.
* This dataset was generated as part of an NCI/Cancer Imaging Program project to augment TCIA datasets with annotations that will improve their value for cancer researchers and AI developers.
