A simple search allows you to search for image studies based on a combination of the following search filters: Collections, Image Modality, Anatomical Site, Species, Phantoms, Third-Party Analysis Results, Date released on TCIA, and Subject IDs. The more criteria you select, the fewer results you receive. After you select your search criteria, you can save your query to use later.
To perform a simple search
Select filters to narrow down the available image series.
|To Select||Do This|
Option 1: Click the box next to each collection name you want to select.
Option 2: Click the magnifying glass to enter a name.
Click the box next to one or more image modalities.
If you select more than one image modality, clicking ANY returns any study that is associated with any of the modalities you selected. Clicking ALL returns all studies that are associated with all of the modalities you selected.
Click the box next to each anatomical site you want to select.
Click the box next to the species you want your search results to represent, either human or Mus musculus (mouse).
Click the box next to the phantom option you want to select.
3rd-Party Analysis Results
3rd-party analysis results are derived data (e.g. segmentations) that were contributed by researchers who were not part of the group that originally submitted a collection to TCIA.
Click the box next to each third-party analysis results option you want to select. Only DICOM data from third-party analysis results appear when using this search filter. A full listing of all third-party analysis data inclusive of non-DICOM formats can be found in the Analysis Results Directory.
|At least X time point (DICOM studies)|
Enter the minimum number of time points that match the criteria of your search. This filter allows you to see subjects that have more than one DICOM study (that is, the patient was seen at multiple time points).
Enter a From and To date to narrow your search results to studies that TCIA first made available during that date range.
Alternately, select the Apply "Available" date range box to exclude studies that were unavailable to TCIA during the selected date range. Click the button to return the dates to the default date range.
Enter Subject IDs associated with the image series you want to receive in your search results. Separate each Subject ID with a comma and then click Apply Subject IDs.
Select which columns you want to have appear in the detailed search results on the Search Results tab by clicking at the top of the Search Results tab. The Pick Columns panel appears.
Search results are shown in two different ways, as a summary and as detailed search results, and which one appears first matches your last choice. The Summary tab shows updated pie charts and the number of image series in the search results.
