The following paper published in Medical Physics is effectively the authoritative user's manual for the database and should be cited in all manuscripts that make use of the database:

Armato SG III, McLennan G, Bidaut L, McNitt-Gray MF, Meyer CR, Reeves AP, Zhao B, Aberle DR, Henschke CI, Hoffman EA, Kazerooni EA, MacMahon H, van Beek EJR, Yankelevitz D, et al.:  The Lung Image Database Consortium (LIDC) and Image Database Resource Initiative (IDRI): A completed reference database of lung nodules on CT scans. Medical Physics, 38: 915--931, 2011.  

Important note: There was a "pilot release" of 399 cases of the LIDC CT data via the NCI CBIIT installation of NBIA. The LIDC-IDRI collection contained on The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) is the complete data set of all 1,010 patients which includes all 399 pilot CT cases plus the additional 611 patient CTs and all 290 corresponding chest x-rays.  A table which allows mapping between the old NBIA IDs and new TCIA IDs can be downloaded for those who have obtained and analyzed the older data.

In addition to following TCIA's Citation Guidelines, if you use this data in your research please be sure to include the following attribution in any publications or grant applications along with references to appropriate LIDC publications.  A listing of these publications can be found on TCIA's Related Publications page.
