    • A Hands-on Introduction to Using the NIH/NCI's Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) (Hands-on)

      • Access to large, high quality data is essential for researchers to understand disease and precision medicine pathways, especially in cancer. However HIPAA constraints make sharing medical images outside an individual institution a complex process. The NCI's Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) addresses this challenge by providing hosting and de-identification services which take the burden of data sharing off researchers. TCIA now contains over 80 unique data collections of more than 30 million images. Recognizing that images alone are not enough to conduct meaningful research, most collections are linked to rich supporting data including patient outcomes, treatment information, genomic / proteomic analyses, and expert image analyses (segmentations, annotations, and radiomic / radiogenomic features). This hands-on session will teach the skills needed to fully access TCIA's existing data as well as learn how to submit new data for potential inclusion in TCIA.

    • Kaleidoscope: A Series Projection Visualization Tool for Review of DICOM Images for Protected Health Information

      • Collections submitted to The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) can approach one-million DICOM files. It is time consuming to review each image for burned-in-PHI, pixel data that contains names, dates, or other personal identifying information. Kaleidoscope was developed to increase throughput of visual review.

    • Deep Learning: Applying Machine Learning to Multi-Disciplinary Precision Medicine Data Sets

      • This didactic session will provide clinician researchers with examples of ongoing machine learning research in imaging combined with clinical and 'omics data sets, along with examples of where to find and how to link existing cancer image archive cases to other public-access stored databases that contain same-patient demographics, genetics, proteomic, and pathology images. Many of these disparate data types may be presently unfamiliar to imagers - such as mass spectroscopy data that arises from cellular proteomic analysis that propel the need for urgently forming new cross-disciplinary research teams. These datasets, often stored separately by different professional specialty teams, constitute critical complementary elements ultimately needed for reliable Machine Learning. This session pivots out from the clinical images available in the NCI Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) collections that acts as the point of origin for linking same-patient demographics, pathology, proteomics, and genetic data so that machine learning efforts can be more scientifically robust.

    • Novel Discoveries Using the NCI's Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) Public Data Sets

      • This didactic session will highlight popular data sets and major projects utilizing TCIA with presentations from leading researchers and data contributors. Attendees will hear presentations about the following projects and data sets: • The Applied Proteogenomics OrganizationaL Learning and Outcomes (APOLLO) network • Cancer Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) • Crowds Cure Cancer • Quantitative Imaging Network (QIN) Prostate MRI • Quantitative Image Informatics for Cancer Research (QIICR) • Digital Database for Screening Mammography • Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) • 4D-Lung.
