  • Clinical Trials Processor (CTP)
    • CTP is a stand-alone image processing application for DICOM (radiology) data.  Our curation teams provide this tool to submitters in order to perform the initial de-identification of DICOM images before they are transferred to TCIA.
  • CTP Wizard
    • CTP Wizard is a custom extension of CTP developed by TCIA.  It provides an interactive graphical user interface which can be used to more easily walk submitters through the process of importing, de-identifying, and exporting their DICOM data.
    POSDA (Perl Open Source Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine [DICOM] Archive) Tools is an Posda
    • Posda is an open source application for the archival and curation of DICOM datasets. After receiving the data from submitters our curation teams use POSDA to perform additional quality checks and ensure all data was completely de-identified.  It allows users to import DICOM data while tracking date and time received. Users can also prioritize multiple data submission streams based on assigned priority, identify and resolve duplicate unique identifiers (UIDs) submitted with different image or metadata, and check and edit data for DICOM conformance, consistency, and referential integrity.
