Summary

The TCGA-LUAD 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 has archived a large portion of the radiological images of the genetically-analyzed Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) 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 LUAD disease type within TCGA.

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

  • Washington University of St Louis

Metadata

The TCGA data portal has extensive clinical and genomic data which can be matched to the patient identifiers of the images here in TCIA.  Here are just a sample of some of the clinical data types available:
