Data from TCIA collections have and continue to be used for image analysis challenges or competitions, e.g., image segmentation, tumor classification, etc. Specific challenges enabled by our data are described here, as well as how to obtain their related data from TCIA where applicable.
SPIE, along with the support of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), will conduct a “Grand Challenge” on quantitative image analysis methods for the diagnostic classification of clinically significant prostate lesions. As part of the 2017 SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium, the PROSTATEx Challenge will provide a unique opportunity for participants to compare their algorithms with those of others from academia, industry, and government in a structured, direct way using the same data sets.

The Computational Precision Medicine (CPM) will be a full-day satellite event held on October 21 in Athens, Greece at MICCAI 2016, composed of short workshops on advances in radio-path-omics and radiomics, and innovative challenges in CT radiomics, classification and nuclei segmentation in digital pathology, and mammographic CAD detection.
