THE LIDC AND ITS MISSION
The LIDC is a Consortium of 5 Institutions funded by the National Cancer Institute under the Cancer Imaging Program (CIP). These institutions are:
Members of other institutions also participate in key roles such as statistical design.
The mission of the LIDC is the sharing of lung images, especially low-dose helical CT scans of adults screened for lung cancer, and related technical and clinical data for the development and testing of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) technologies.
To establish standard formats and processes for managing thoracic CT scans and related technical and clinical data for use in the development and testing of CAD algorithms.
To develop an image database as a web-accessible international research resource for the development, training, and evaluation of CAD methods for lung cancer detection and diagnosis using helical CT.
