The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Prostate Phenotype Research Group is part of the Cancer Imaging Project TCGA Radiology Initiative focused on analyzing images from the TCGA- Prostate Adenocarcinoma (PRAD) collections. Images which correlate to the PRAD tissue data in TCGA’s Data Portal are being gathered for submission to The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA).
According to the TCGA page on PRAD, researchers hope to make the following types of discoveries with this data:
Per TCGA and TCIA Guidelines, formal permission requests are still required to submit publications using TCGA-PRAD data. Please see the following links for more information about the freedom-to-publish criteria for these data sets:
No restrictions; all data available without limitations
Collection has not reached 100 imaging subjects; please check with firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any publication
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about these policies.
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, ISS groups are given the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type per the guidelines in the table above. This opportunity will generate increased participation in building these multi-institutional data sets as they become an open community resource. Current TCGA-PRAD source sites include:
Please contact Dr. Matthew Heller (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have scientific questions for TCGA-PRAD ISS or are interested in collaborating with their group.
