SummaryProstate cancer T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance images (MRIs) were acquired on a 1.5 T Philips Achieva by combined surface and endorectal coil, including dynamic contrast-enhanced images obtained prior to, during and after I.V. administration of 0.1 mmol/kg body weight of Gadolinium-DTPA (pentetic acid).

Corresponding clinical metadata (XLS format) and 3D segmentation files (NRRD format) are offered as a supplement to this image collection.
- Prostate-Diagnosis metadata (updated 2012-05-07) - The XLS file contains pathology biopsy and excised gland tissue reports and the MRI radiology report for most subjects.
- NRRD 3D segmentations (2 separate sets of segmentations available)
- NRRD segmentations (updated 2012-05-07)- The software used to generate the NRRD files on the MR T2W_TSE_AX image sequences was 3DSlicer. The 3DSlicer NRRD files allow visualization and downstream analysis of the following prostate components: prostate gland boundary; internal capsule; central gland, peripheral zone; seminal vesicles; urethra; cancer – dominant nodule; neurovascular bundle; penile bulb; ejaculatory duct; veru-montanum; and rectum. Presently, there are available mark-ups of 5 cases (case extension #'s 0006, 0014, 0019, 0021, 0048). These markups are made public courtesy (and copyrighted by) Dr. Nicolas Bloch as portions of his forthcoming online prostate cancer image atlas.
- NCI_ISBI_Challenge-ProstateDx_Training_Segmentations.zip- This file contains segmentations for 30 Prostate-Diagnosis subjects in NRRD format which mark the boundaries of the central gland and peripheral zone. This data was provided as part of the NCI-ISBI 2013 Challenge - Automated Segmentation of Prostate Structures.
- ProstateDx_1.5T_Training_Segmentations.zip - Segmentations of the neurovascular bundle and seminal vessicles are available as MHA files. These were provided as part of a planned follow up competition that did not materialize.
- Note: see our tutorial on Using 3D Slicer with the Prostate-Diagnosis data if you are not familiar with using this kind of data.
