NCI Imaging Data Commons, Part of the Cancer Research Data Commons
In this upcoming Cancer Moonshot℠ seminar, Dr. Andrey Fedorov will present the Imaging Data Commons (IDC), a repository within the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) that contains publicly available imaging data and viewers.
The IDC provides cloud-based access to a wide variety of medical imaging and metadata from The Cancer Imaging Archive and other NCI projects such as the Human Tumor Atlas Network. The IDC allows researchers to connect imaging data to corresponding genomics and proteomics data in the CRDC.
This webinar presentation aligns with the Cancer Moonshot Blue Ribbon Panel Report’s recommendation of “Building a National Ecosystem” for sharing and analyzing cancer data so that researchers, clinicians, and patients can contribute data, thereby facilitating efficient data analysis.
Dr. Fedorov is an associate professor in radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
