DISCLAIMER: MAX is not guaranteed to process all input correctly. Possible errors include (but are not limited to) the inability to process correctly some types of nodule ambiguity (where nodule ambiguity refers to overlap between nodule markings having complicated shapes or to overlap between a nodule marking and a non-nodule mark).

This tool is a community contribution developed by Thomas Lampert. It is designed for extracting individual annotations from the XML files and converting them, and the DICOM images, into TIF format for easier processing in Matlab (LIDC-IDRI dataset).

Prior to 7/27/2015, many of the series in the LIDC-IDRI collection, had inconsistent values in the DICOM Frame of Reference UID, DICOM tag (0020,0052). Each image had a unique value for Frame of Reference (which should be consistent across a series). This has been corrected. In addition, the following tags, which were present (but should not have been), were removed: (0020,0200) Synchronization Frame of Reference, (3006,0024) Referenced Frame of Reference, and (3006,00c2) Related Frame of Reference.
Version 2: Updated 2012/03/21
On 2012-03-21 the XML associated with patient LIDC-IDRI-0101 was updated with a corrected version of the file. The old version is still available if needed for audit purposes.
Version 1: 2011/06/23
There was a "pilot release" of 399 cases of the LIDC CT data via the NCI CBIIT installation of NBIA . The LIDC-IDRI collection contained on TCIA is the complete data set of all 1,010 patients which includes all 399 pilot CT cases plus the additional 611 patient CTs and all 290 corresponding chest x-rays. A table which allows mapping between the old NBIA IDs and new TCIA IDs can be downloaded for those who have obtained and analyzed the older data.
For a subset of approximately 100 cases from among the initial 399 cases released, inconsistent rating systems were used among the 5 sites with regard to the spiculation and lobulation characteristics of lesions identified as nodules > 3 mm. The XML nodule characteristics data as it exists for some cases will be impacted by this error. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Contrary to previous documentation (prior to March 2010), the correct ordering for the subjective nodule lobulation and nodule spiculation rating scales stored in the XML files is 1=none to 5=marked. The issue of consistency noted above still remains to be corrected.
