Corresponding clinical metadata (XLS format) and 3D segmentation files (NRRD format) are offered as a supplement to this image collection. The XLS file contains pathology biopsy and excised gland tissue reports and the MRI radiology report for most of the collection's 53 prostate cancer cases.
The software used to generate the NRRD files on the MR T2W_TSE_AX image sequences was 3DSlicer (http://www.slicer.org/). 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; rectum. Presently there are available mark-ups of 5 cases (case extension #'s 0006, 0014, 0019, 0021, 0048) with 30 more cases in process. These markups are made public courtesy (and copyrighted by) Dr. Nicolas Bloch as portions of his forthcoming online prostate cancer image atlas.
Note: See our tutorial on Using 3D Slicer with the Prostate-Diagnosis data if you are not familiar with using this kind of data.
