USC releases open-source MRI stroke dataset
"MRI stroke data set released by USC research team" - EurekAlert!. 2/20/2018.
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adults, affecting more than 15 million people worldwide each year. A USC-led team has compiled and shared one of the largest open-source datasets of brain scans from stroke patients, the NIH-supported Anatomical Tracings of Lesion After Stroke (ATLAS) dataset.
"One of our goals is to meta-analyze thousands of stroke MRIs from around the world to understand how the lesions impact recovery," says USC's Sook-Lei Liew, lead author of the study.
