If you are interested in using the API and have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Getting Started with the TCIA API
The following characteristics apply to all TCIA APIs:
- You access a resource by sending an HTTP request to the TCIA API server. The server replies with a response that either contains the data you requested, or a status indicator.
Every request must contain an API-KEY. The key can be included in the url by adding an extra query parameter api_key or it can be included in the HTTP headers.
Expand title How to obtain an API-Key
You can obtain one API-KEY and use that for your application; you do not need a separate API-KEY for each user of your software.. To obtain an API-Key please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact TCIA's help desk by phone at: +1 314-747-4254.
- You can access the metadata of an API by appending /metadata to the end of the query. See examples. The metadata is in JSON format and conforms to this schema
- Most APIs can return results as CSV/JSON/XML/HTML. You can specify the return format by including the query parameter format
