Prostate cancer T1- and T2 -weighted MRIs acquired on a 1.5 T Philips Achieva by combined surface and endorectal coil include dynamic contrast-enhanced images obtained prior to, during and after I.V. administration of 0.1 mmol/kg bodyweight of Gadolinium-DTPA.

Supporting Documentation and metadata

This collection originally consisted of 12 cases submitted 2011-09-21. An additional 25 new cases were added 2012-03-15, along with corresponding metadata.

Case-specific patient demographics, radiology and pathology reports, PSA level when available, are located on an XLS worksheet:Corresponding clinical metadata (XLS format) and 3D segmentation files (NRRD format) are offered as a supplement to this image collection.  The XLS file contains pathology biopsy and excised gland tissue reports and the MRI radiology report for most of the collection's 54 prostate cancer cases.

The software used to generate the NRRD files on the MR T2W_TSE_AX image sequences was 3DSlicer (http://www.slicer.org/).  The 3DSlicer NRRD files allow visualization and downstream analysis of the following prostate components: prostate gland boundary; internal capsule; central gland, peripheral zone; seminal vesicles; urethra; cancer – dominant nodule; neurovascular bundle; penile bulb; ejaculatory duct; veru-montanum; rectum. Presently there are available mark-ups of 5 cases (case extension #'s 0006, 0014, 0019, 0021, 0048) with 30 more cases in process. These markups are made public courtesy (and copyrighted by) Dr. Nicolas Bloch as portions of his forthcoming online prostate cancer image atlas.
