Imaging Source Site (ISS) groups are created and governed by participants from institutions providing imaging data for a given cancer type. Modeled after TCGA’s analysis groups, these ISS groups have the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type, as outlined in the publication policies below, to increase participation in building multi-institutional data sets into an open community resource.

Ongoing Research Efforts

Imaging Source Site (ISS) Groups are being populated and governed by participants from institutions that have provided imaging data to the archive for a given cancer type. Modeled after TCGA analysis groups, ISS groups are given the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type per the guidelines in the table above. This opportunity will generate increased participation in building these multi-institutional data sets as they become an open community resource. Current TCGA-BLCA source sites include:
