  • MRQy quality measures for TCGA-GBM MRI datasets

Go to start of metadata


These quality assessment results were generated for TCGA-GBM subjects for whom a T1-weighted POST sequence in the axial plane was available, resulting in a cohort of n=133 T1-POST MRI scans accrued from 7 different sites. All 133 T1-POST studies were downloaded as DICOM files from TCIA and then processed via MRQy to compute quality measures for (a) interrogating the presence of site- or equipment-specific variations within a cohort, and (b) quantifying the impact of MRI artifacts to determine what pre-analytical corrections are needed. The MRQy output can be easily interrogated via the associated HTML5 based front-end, allowing for real-time filtering and visualization. MRQy is available for download at:
