The NCRI collection was submitted as part of a small pilot project to show international collaboration between caBIG and the United Kingdom's National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI).  The cases consist of multiple pulse-sequence MR imaging studies (including rectal coil probes) from 6 prostate cancer patients. Two of the cases (ASP308 and FPH309) also contain annotation files which point to the corresponding digitized histopathology slides stored at NCRI's servers.
