Just in time for the holidays, we are happy to share the news about Imaging Data Commons data release v17.
Our best wishes of peace, love and joy in the New Year!
As of this release, IDC brings you >50 TB (>43M image files) of publicly available image data!
Back in February, we shared with you the funding opportunity announcement soliciting applications to generate annotations for the imaging collections in IDC. Leidos Biomedical Research awarded that contract to a research group at BAMF Health, and IDC v17 release brings the annotations produced in that contract to you!
BAMF group led by Jeff Van Oss selected a subset of IDC images covering a range of modalities and cancer types, trained a range of nnU-Net-based models, applied those models to the selected cases, and completed quality checks for a subset of AI-annotated cases, correcting the results when necessary. You can use the direct link to the annotated cases to see the result for yourself: https://portal.imaging.datacommons.cancer.gov/explore/filters/?analysis_results_id=BAMF-AIMI-Annotations. The details of how the analysis was done are described in this preprint, and all of the code and weights are available publicly under BAMF GitHub organization, accompanied by Colab notebooks! We also prepared a custom dashboard specifically for this new collection, which is available here, and is demonstrated in the video below.
You can now choose from several viewers while looking at the radiology images in IDC. In addition to the OHIF Viewer v2, which has been around since the initial release of IDC, we now also provide direct integration with OHIF Viewer v3 and Kitware VolView. In the future, our plan is to slowly phase out the use of OHIF Viewer v2, since it is no longer supported. We are actively working together with the core OHIF team to implement the currently missing v2 features in v3 - you can see the status of this work in this GitHub Project board.
See the demo of how you can choose a specific viewer in the video below. If you see any regressions, please open the thread in this forum so we can investigate it!
