The TCGA Ovarian Phenotype Research Group is part of the CIP TCGA Radiology Initiative focused on analyzing images from the TCGA-OV collections. Images which correlate to the Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma tissue data in the TCGA Data Portal are continuing to be gathered for submission to TCIA.

According to the TCGA page on Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma, TCGA researchers have:

TCGA-OV Marker Paper and Image Source Sites (ISS)

Imaging Source Site (ISS) Groups will be populated and governed by participants from institutions that have provided imaging data to the archive for a given cancer type. Modeled after TCGA analysis groups, these groups are given the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type per the aforementioned publication policy. It is hoped that this will generate increased participation in the building of these multi-institutional data sets that become an open community resource.  Current TCGA-OV source sites include:

Please contact Dr. Evis Sala ( if you have scientific questions you would like to direct to the TCGA-OV ISS or are interested in collaborating with their group.
