Crowd-sourcing the creation of publicly-accessible reference data sets could address this challenge. In 2011 the National Cancer Institute funded development of The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA), a free and open-access database of medical images. However, most of these collections lack the labeling and annotations needed by image processing researchers for progress in deep learning and radiomics. As a result, TCIA has partnered with the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and numerous academic centers to harness the vast knowledge of RSNA meeting attendees to generate these tumor markups.  Data sets annotated included CT scans from TCGA-LUADTCGA-KIRCTCGA-LIHC, and TCGA-OV.
