This collection contains FDG-PET/CT and anatomical MR (T1-weighted, T2-weighted with fat-suppression) imaging data from 51 patients with histologically proven soft-tissue sarcomas (STSs) of the extremities. All patients had pre-treatment FDG-PET/CT and MRI scans between November 2004 and November 2011. (Note: date in the TCIA images have been changed in the interest of de-identification; the same change was applied across all images, preserving the time intervals between serial scans). During the follow-up period, 19 patients developed lung metastases. Imaging data and lung metastases development status were used in the following study:

Vallières, M. et al. (2015). A radiomics model from joint FDG-PET and MRI texture features for the prediction of lung metastases in soft-tissue sarcomas of the extremities. Physics in Medicine and Biology, 60(14), 5471-5496. doi:10.1088/0031-9155/60/14/5471.

Imaging data, tumor contours (RTstruct DICOM objects), clinical data and source code is available for this study. See the DOI below for more details and links to access the whole dataset.
