We are the consortium building the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Imaging Data Commons (IDC) - a cloud-based resource within NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) that connects researchers with cancer imaging datasets, resources for exploring those datasets and identifying relevant cohorts, and other components of CRDC that will host additional data types and support computation on the defined cohorts.

Open community

IDC will host publicly available datasets, extensible with the annotations and analysis results contributed by the community, integrated with the data from other domains.


IDC will aim to implement best practices for managing metadata associated with the images to support integration and interoperability.

Open source

IDC will leverage the strengths of the existing open source projects, and will share all of the new software tools developed as open source.
