NCI has announced resources for the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) (http://proteomics.cancer.gov/) aimed at integrating proteomic research with genomics to produce a more unified understanding of tumor biology. As the CPTAC available tissue donor resources begin to ramp up, a number of legacy TCGA genetic-focused cases -- CPTAC analyzed -- have diagnostic images already accessible on The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).
Histopathology imaging from approved CPTAC cases will be made available on TCIA. Currently TCIA hosts 265 images from 64 Subjects.
A tutorial walk-through of the histopathology review system is available here.
TCIA is in the process of collection radiology clinical imaging from selected CPTAC tissue sources sites. The imaging data will be made available on TCIA as it is collected. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The NCI Cancer Imaging Program organized those CPTAC specific cases as an opportunity for researchers to explore what such combined research resources might offer. They consist of 28 ovarian (TCGA-OV) and 14 breast (TCGA-BRCA) cases. Those imaging cases are easily downloadable from TCIA using the drop-down Tool-menu entry “shared lists” under the separate names of: "CPTAC Breast Analyzed" and "CPTAC OV Analyzed". The images of those grouped cases can be down-loaded by entering the afore-mentioned “shared lists” names on https://public.cancerimagingarchive.net/ncia/searchCustomList.jsf Their individual case-matched CPTAC Proteomic Analysis Data is down-loadable from: https://cptac-data-portal.georgetown.edu/cptacPublic/ Moreover, the case specific Clinical Data that matches each of those TCIA archived image cases are attached here as XLS sheets.
Type "CPTAC Proteomic Breast TCIA TCGA cases" into the Image Search "Tools" drop-down menu item called "Shared List"
Type "CPTAC Proteomic Ovarian TCIA TCGA cases" into the Image Search "Tools" drop-down menu item called "Shared List"
An early CPTAC publication which reports on a more comprehensive collection of cases from those TCGA tumor data collections (BRCA and OV) can be found at: “Comprehensive quantitative analysis of ovarian and breast cancer tumor peptidomes”.

An excellent review of proteomic biomarkers is the publication: "Proteomics in cancer biomarkers discovery: challenges and applications." Sallam RM1. Dis Markers. 2015;2015:321370. doi: 10.1155/2015/321370.

TCIA publication guidelines, derived from the policy outlined by TCGA, must be followed in addition to the TCGA Data Portal publication policy: http://cancergenome.nih.gov/abouttcga/policies/publicationguidelines.
There are no limitations on publications containing analyses using TCGA-linked imaging data sets, if the data set meets one of the following three freedom-to-publish criteria:
The specific status of each tumor data set is available on the Data Usage Policies and Restrictions page. Do not hesitate to contact email@example.com with any questions.
