This collection contains subjects from the National Cancer Institute’s Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium Cutaneous Melanoma (CPTAC-CM) cohort. CPTAC is a national effort to accelerate the understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through the application of large-scale proteome and genome analysis, or proteogenomics. Radiology and pathology images from CPTAC patients are being collected and made publicly available by The Cancer Imaging Archive to enable researchers to investigate cancer phenotypes which may correlate to corresponding proteomic, genomic and clinical data.
Imaging from each cancer type will be contained in its own TCIA Collection, with the collection name "CPTAC-cancertype", and is being made available on a release schedule that is coordinated with the CPTAC program releases of proteomic and genomic data. A summary of CPTAC imaging efforts can be found on the CPTAC Imaging Proteomics page.
Radiology imaging is collected from standard of care imaging performed on patients immediately before the pathological diagnosis, and from follow-up scans where available. For this reason the radiology image data sets are heterogeneous in terms of scanner modalities, manufacturers and acquisition protocols. Pathology imaging is collected as part of the CPTAC qualification workflow.
You can join the CPTAC Imaging Special Interest Group to be notified of webinars & data releases, collaborate on common data wrangling tasks and seek out partners to explore research hypotheses! Artifacts from previous webinars such as slide decks and video recordings can be found on the CPTAC SIG Webinars page.
