Excerpt

The The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Head-Neck Phenotype Research Group is part of the Cancer Imaging Program TCGA Radiology Initiative focused on analyzing images from the TCGA-Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSC) collection. Multiple modalities of images which correlate to the head-neck tissue data in the TCGA Data Portal are being gathered for submission to The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).

According to the TCGA page on HNSC, researchers hope to make the following types of discoveries:

Imaging Source Site (ISS) Groups will be 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 TCGA Publication Guidelinestype 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-HNSC source sites include:
