Welcome to the VIA/I-ELCAP Public Access Research Database.
This database was made possible by a collaboration between the ELCAP
and VIA research groups.
It was created to make available a common
may be used for the performance evaluation of different computer
aided detection systems.
This database was first released in December 2003 and is a
prototype for web-based image data archives.
The database currently consists of an image set of 50 low-dose documented
whole-lung CT scans for detection. The CT scans were obtained in a
single breath hold with a 1.25 mm slice thickness. The locations of
nodules detected by the radiologist are also provided.
The website provides a set of interactive image viewing tools for both
the CT images and their annotations. All images and their annotations
may be downloaded from the website.
We use a secure access method for the data entry web site to maintain
the privacy of the data and the user. Currently, we have a self-certified
web site, this causes most browsers to produce a number of warning
messages. Please ignore these messages and click on the next, finish,
accept or allow buttons as appropriate until the data entry web page
appears. At this time the lock icon will appear on the web browser
and transactions will be secure (in spite of all those messages).
