Note that the TCGA-KIRP and TCGA-BRCA collections (marked with the asterisk in the list above) are currently missing SM high resolution layer files/instances due to a known limitation of Google Healthcare that makes it not possible to ingest datasets that exceed some internal limits. Specifically, the following patient/studies are affected:
  • TCGA-KIRP: PatientID TCGA-5P-A9KA, StudyInstanceUID 2.25.191236165605958868867890945341011875563
  • TCGA-BRCA: PatientID TCGA-OL-A66H, StudyInstanceUID 2.25.82800314486527687800038836287574075736 The affected files will be included in IDC when the infrastructure limitation is addressed.
Collection access level change:
  1. 1.
    Vestibular-Schwannoma-SEG is now available as public access collection

v9 - May 2022

This data release introduces the concept of differential license to IDC: some of the collections maintained by IDC contain items that have different licenses. As an example, radiology component of the TCGA-GBM collection is covered by the TCIA limited access license, and is not available in IDC, while the digital pathology component is covered by CC-BY. With this release, we complete sharing in full of the digital pathology component of the datasets released by the CPTAC and TCGA programs.

v8 - April 2022

The main highlight of this release is the addition of the NLST and TCGA Slide Microscopy imaging data.

National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) collection is added. The data included consists of the following components:
1) CT images available as any other imaging collection (via IDC Portal, BigQuery metadata tables, and storage buckets);
2) a subset of clinical data available in the BigQuery tables starting with nlst_ under the idc_v4 dataset, as documented in the Collection-specific BigQuery Tables section.
3) One instance is missing from patient/study/series: 126153/1.2.840.113654.2.55.319335498043274792486636919135185299851/1.2.840.113654.2.55.262421043240525317038356381369289737801
