The Cancer Imaging Archive


The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) is a service which de-identifies and publishes medical images of cancer. TCIA is funded by the Cancer Imaging Program (CIP), a part of the United States National Cancer Institute (NCI), and is managed by the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR).
The imaging data are organized as “collections” defined by a common disease (e.g. lung cancer), image modality or type (MRI, CT, digital histopathology, etc) or research focus. TCIA currently hosts over 200 collections consisting of imaging data from more than 70,000 subjects. An emphasis is made to provide supporting data related to the images such as patient outcomes, treatment details, genomics and expert analyses.


"The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) has linked our radiology data portal software together with OHIF to visualize the DICOM data that we host. This enables users to quickly preview scans from our datasets before deciding which collection(s) they want to download."
