Cancer Moonshot Biobank is a National Cancer Institute initiative to support current and future investigations into drug resistance and sensitivity and other NCI-sponsored cancer research initiatives, with an aim of improving researchers' understanding of cancer and how to intervene in cancer initiation and progression. During the course of this study, biospecimens (blood and tissue removed during medical procedures) and associated data will be collected longitudinally from at least 1000 patients across at least 10 cancer types, who represent the demographic diversity of the U.S. and receiving standard of care cancer treatment at multiple NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) sites.The
This collection contains de-identified radiology and histopathology imaging procured from subjects in NCI’s Cancer Moonshot Biobank-Multiple Myeloma (CMB-MML) cohort. Associated genomic, phenotypic and clinical data will be hosted by The Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) and other NCI databases. A summary of Cancer Moonshot Biobank imaging efforts can be found on the Cancer Moonshot Biobank Imaging page.

De-identification of DICOM dates
De-identification of dates for this dataset uses the DICOM Part 3.15 Annex E standard “Retain Longitudinal With Modified Dates Option” which allows dates to be retained as long as they are modified from the original date. TCIA implements this using a technique which de-identifies the dates while preserving the longitudinal relationship between them. Original dates will be first normalized to January 1, 1960 and then offset relative to the date of registration for each patient. This normalized date system was chosen in order to make it obvious that the dates are not real, and to make it easy to quickly determine how much time has passed between the date of registration and the patients' related imaging studies.
For example, if the real date of a patient's registration was 03/27/2018 and the original imaging Study Date was 03/29/2018 then the anonymized TCIA Study Date would become 01/03/1960 (two days after the base date of 1/1/1960).
Insertion of computed "REGISTRATION"/Days offset from registration" value
In addition to modifying the actual date fields in the DICOM header, the "days from registration" values are calculated and stored in the DICOM tag (0012,0052) Longitudinal Temporal Offset from Event with the associated tag (0012,0053) Longitudinal Temporal Event Type set to “REGISTRATION”. Here is an example DICOM header from a scan where the patient's imaging was performed 2 days before the registration, resulting in a negative offset value.
|(0012,0052)||Longitudinal Temporal Offset from Event||-2.0|
|(0012,0053)||Longitudinal Temporal Event Type||REGISTRATION|
