New Imaging Data Now Available in the NCI Imaging Data Commons

On June 15, the NCI Imaging Data Commons released a major update to its platform adding 78 new publicly available image collections from The Cancer Imaging Archive.

Cancer researchers and data scientists alike can now analyze the 106 image and 6 analysis results collections directly from the IDC’s image viewer. The new additions include images from studies like:

  • Applied Proteogenomics Organizational Learning and Outcomes (APOLLO),
  • Clinical Proteomics Tumor Atlas Consortium (CPTAC),
  • LungCT-Diagnosis,
  • Brain-Tumor-Progression,
  • and more!

For a full list of the available data sets, visit the IDC Collections page. In addition to new data, the IDC has fixed bugs and provided new features in the image viewer tool to help you better visualize imaging data on a case-by-case level.

The IDC connects researchers with publicly available cancer imaging data with cloud-based computational and big data analysis tools through the Google Cloud Platform and NCI’s Cloud Resources. As components of the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons, data sets in IDC also have complimentary genomic and proteomic data in the Genomic Data Commons and Proteomic Data Commons.
