TCIA New Collection Proposal
Please answer the questions below to allow the TCIA Advisory Group to review your proposal. The group meets monthly to review new proposals. You will be invited to the next upcoming meeting to review your proposal and answer any questions. Email
with any questions.
Provide a scientific point of contact.
Please include name, email, and phone number for the person who we can contact to resolve any questions about this proposal and how the data were collected.
Who will we work with to obtain the data?
Please provide a name, email, and phone number for any technical point(s) of contact who will be involved in sending us your data.
Are you able to provide documentation of IRB approval (or ethics board equivalent) to submit a de-identified version of your data to TCIA where it will be made publicly available?
We will provide software which will de-identify the data according to the DICOM standard (Attribute Confidentiality Profile – DICOM PS 3.15: Appendix E) before it leaves your institution.
Data Access Policy
for more information. Allowing data to become immediately public is highly preferential. In cases where restrictions are required they should not exceed 12 month enforcement without a strong justification.
Data can be shared publicly
Data can be shared publicly after an embargo period
Data cannot be shared publicly
What type of cancer
Suggest a descriptive title for your data set.
How many subjects are in your data set?
How many total DICOM studies or pathology slides are in your data set?
Example: When a patient is scanned before surgery, and then again after surgery that 1 patient would have 2 DICOM studies. If you have 100 subjects and each subject has pre and post surgery imaging then you have 200 total DICOM studies.
List the authors of this data set.
Please list all authors in the order you'd like them to appear if the data set is published on TCIA. Please include all author's OrcIDs as well.
Please list any additional acknowledgements or funding statements you'd like us to notify users about if your data is accepted.
Please list all authors in the order you'd like them to appear if the data set is published on TCIA.
Which image types are included in the data set?
Please describe the imaging data types you'd like to share.
Radiation Therapy (RTSTRUCT, RTDOSE, RTPLAN)
Which kinds of supporting data are included in the data set?
Clinical (e.g. patient demographics, outcomes)
Image Analyses (e.g. segmentations, radiologist/pathologist reports, image features)
Genomics (e.g. gene expression, copy number variation, methylation)
Proteomics (e.g. mass spectrometry, protein arrays)
Software / Source Code
No additional data besides DICOM
Specify the file format utilized for each type of data specified above.
Examples: "CT's are saved in DICOM format", "Segmentations are saved in .MHA format", "Pathology slides are saved as .SVS files". If you're providing clinical data it is helpful if you can list the data fields that will be in your spreadsheet.
Please describe any steps you've taken to modify your data prior to submitting it us.
Examples: Have you attempted to de-identify the data already? Performed any file conversions from the source data?
Provide an abstract which describes your data set.
This will be used to inform TCIA users about your data set. Be sure to include patient inclusion/exclusion criteria, image acquisition protocol/parameters such as pulse sequences, slide magnifications, descriptions of any non-image data and any other information that would be helpful to people trying to use your data.
How will other researchers benefit if we add your data to TCIA?
Provide a short explanation of scientific questions which might be answered using this data and how it is unique from the existing Collections already in TCIA.
If there is a data descriptor or other authoritative publication you would like people to cite when utilizing this data please provide the citation.
If there are any additional publications about this data set please list them.
As a convenience to TCIA users we list these at
Are there any time constraints associated with sharing your data set?
For example, do you have a publication that is pending availability of this data in a public archive? Will this data set be used as part of a challenge competition?
