Welcome to the VOLCANO'09 (Volume
Change Analysis of Nodules) Measurement Challenge website. The VOLCANO
competition is a part of the
Second International Workshop on Pulmonary Image Analysis
held in conjunction with MICCAI 2009.
The goal of this study is to
compare the outcomes of various algorithms measuring the change
in volume of pulmonary
nodules from CT scans using a common dataset and performance
evaluation method. The data for this competition is prepared for inclusion in
Public Lung Database To Address Drug Response and is provided by the Weill
Medical College of Cornell University.
This dataset consists of pairs of lung CT scans containing
53 lesions. Any team, either from academia or industry, may join the study.
In order to participate:
a team and accept the
Download the image dataset containing training and testing data
the results produced by your algorithm.
Submit a description of the method used to create the results
You are also strongly encouraged to submit a paper to the
Second International Workshop on Pulmonary Image Analysis.
After the results are submitted, they
will be evaluated and presented during the workshop. More information on the
submission and evaluation procedures is available in the
Information section of the website.
