The TCIA Advisory Group reviews each candidate collection based on the criteria above and the availability of resources, and decides whether to accept, reject, or ask for clarifications for each candidate collection.  Preference is given to data sets which can be fully public and do not require any application process or data use agreements.    Proposals which contain supporting non-image data (e.g. patient outcomes, training classifiers/labels, tumor segmentations) are highly preferred to those which lack these characteristics.  The Advisory Group is composed of staff from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR) who are experts in cancer imaging, informatics and related technologies.  The current membership includes:

  • Paula Jacobs, Associate Director, NCI Cancer Imaging Program
