Summary

Excerpt

The TCGA-BRCA data collection is part of a larger effort to enhance the The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data set with characterized radiological images.  The Cancer Imaging Program (CIP) with the cooperation of several of the TCGA tissue-contributing institutions are working to archive a large portion of the radiological images of the genetically-analyzed breast cancer cases.

Clinical, genetic, and pathology data resides in the TCGA data portal while the radiological data is stored on The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).   The data utilizes the same TCGA patient identifiers in both repositories, allowing researchers to explore the correlations between tissue genotype and radiological phenotype. This Collection within TCIA is related to the BRCA disease type within TCGA.

Info

You can view and download these images on The Cancer Imaging Archive by logging in to TCIA and selecting the TCGA-BRCA collection. A full listing of the available imaging studies/series for each patient can be found in this spreadsheet:TCGA-BRCA_series_descriptions.csv

The TCGA data portal has extensive clinical and genomic data which can be matched to the patient identifiers of the images here in TCIA.  Here are just a sample of some of the clinical data types available:
