RIDER Cooperative Agreement Data (U01) 2005-2008

Image archive of CT lung cancer patients followed during treatment ('RIDER' acronym stands for "Reference Image Database to Evaluate Response"). Each case consists of full-chest DICOM CT exams at multiple time-intervals during the course of a patient's therapy. The collection is a resource for developing and testing CAD software to analyze tumor change at multiple time points as the patient responds to therapy or the disease progresses. Selected cases from this indexed collection (in full DICOM format) can be retrieved and downloaded from the archive by a variety of DICOM-indexed queries.
