All the images are diagnostic contrast enhanced CT scans. The images were retrospectively acquired, to ensure sufficient patient follow-up. Slice thickness is variable : between 3 and 6 mm. All images were done at diagnosis and prior to surgery. The objective of the study was to extract prognostic image features that will describe lung adenocarcinomas and will associate with overall survival.
The accompanying data are survival data (status: dead or alive, survival time in months) and pathological stage (TNM). See the following publication for more information:
