Abstract:

The following de-identified chest X-ray (CXR) image data sets are available to the research community along with findings and consensus radiologist annotations. Both sets contain normal as well as abnormal CXRs with the latter containing TB-consistent manifestations. For additional information about image datasets and annotations please refer to these papers [1] and [2]. The use and sharing of these deidentified images have been reviewed and exempted by the Ethics boards.

Montgomery County CXR Set: The images in this data set have been acquired from the TB Control Program of the Department of Health and Human Services of Montgomery County, MD, USA. This set contains 138 posterior-anterior CXRs of which 80 are normal and 58 are abnormal with manifestations that are consistent with TB. All images are de-identified and available along with left and right PA-view lung masks in PNG format. The data set also includes consensus annotations from two radiologists for 1024 × 1024 resized images and radiology readings. Download Link

Shenzhen Hospital CXR Set: The CXR images in this data set have been collected and provided by Shenzhen No.3 Hospital in Shenzhen, Guangdong providence, China. The images are in PNG format. There are 326 normal and 336 abnormal CXRs, respectively, showing various TB-consistent manifestations.
