Summary

The TCGA-BRCA data collection is part of a larger effort to enhance the The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data set with characterized radiological images.  The Cancer Imaging Program (CIP) with the cooperation of several of the TCGA tissue-contributing institutions are working to archive a large portion of the radiological images of the genetically-analyzed breast cancer cases.

Clinical, genetic, and pathology data resides in the TCGA data portal while the radiological data is stored on The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).   The data utilizes the same TCGA patient identifiers in both repositories, allowing researchers to explore the correlations between tissue genotype and radiological phenotype. This Collection within TCIA is related to the BRCA disease type within TCGA.

We would like to acknowledge the individuals and institutions that have provided data for this collection:

  • Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN - Special thanks to Bradley J. Erickson, MD, PhD from the Department of Radiology, Mayo Medical School.
  • Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY - Special thanks to Ermelinda Bonaccio, MD and Joe Filippini from the Department of Diagnostic Radiology.
  • Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY - Special thanks to Elizabeth A Morris MD, Gloria Guman Figler, and Pierre Elnajjar. (Submission in progress)
  • University of Pittsburgh/UPMC, Pittsburgh, PA - Special thanks to Margarita L Zuley MD, Rose Jarosz and Chandra Holback. (Submission in progress)
