#Opendata highlights: Mammographies

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

The very last edition of Data is plural in 2017 featured an improved database of mammographies, overhauled by researchers at Stanford:
A better mammography database. The Digital Database for Screening Mammography was first released two decades ago, in 1997. It contains data and images from 2,620 mammographies — a mix of normal, benign, and malignant cases. In a Scientific Data article published last week, a team of Stanford University researchers describe a series of improvements they’ve made to the original database; their Curated Breast Imaging Subset of DDSM has modernized the database’s image formatting, added detailed “region-of-interest” annotations, and converted the metadata into CSV files.
This one hit home for me because my mother's sister goes in for surgery today for a lump they found in her mammary duct. Va com Deus, Tia.
