This collection contains MR images of both low and high grade glial brain lesions. Data includes post-contrast T1w images with co-registered volumes of dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) MR images in DICOM format. Binary regions of interest are also included, in DICOM format, of the lesion, arterial input function, normal appearing white matter, normal appearing cerebral cortex, and whole brain. The data was provided to help facilitate research activities of the National Cancer Institute's (NCI's) Quantitative Imaging Network (QIN). This collection was supported by Grant U01 CA176110.
The mission of the QIN is to improve the role of quantitative imaging for clinical decision making in oncology by developing and validating data acquisition, analysis methods, and tools to tailor treatment for individual patients and predict or monitor the response to drug or radiation therapy. More information is available on the Quantitative Imaging Network Collections page. Interested investigators can apply to the QIN at: Quantitative Imaging for Evaluation of Responses to Cancer Therapies (U01) PAR-11-150.
