The TCGA-GBM data collection is part of a larger effort to enhance the The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data set with characterized radiological images. The Cancer Imaging Program (CIP) with the cooperation of several of the TCGA tissue-contributing institutions has archived a large portion of the radiological images of the genetically-analyzed GBM cases.
Clinical, genetic, and pathology data resides in the TCGA data portal while the radiological data is stored on The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA). The data utilizes the same TCGA patient identifiers in both repositories, allowing researchers to explore the correlations between tissue genotype and radiological phenotype. This Collection within TCIA is related to the GBM disease type within TCGA.
Institutions that have provided data for this collection include:
- Henry Ford
- MD Anderson

CIP TCGA Radiology Initiative
The Cancer Imaging Program has begun multiple projects to collaborate with the academic community to encourage cross disciplinary research which utilizes the data provided in these resources. Much more can be learned about this effort on the TCGA Glioma Phenotype Research Group page.
