Prostate Fused-MRI-Pathology

This collection comprises a total of 28 3 Tesla T1-weighted, T2-weighted, Diffusion weighted and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced prostate MRI along with accompanying digitized histopathology (H&Estained) images of corresponding radical prostatectomy specimens. The MRI scans also have a mapping of extent of prostate cancer on them [1]. Each surgically excised prostate specimen was originally sectioned and quartered resulting in 4 slides for each section. Each of these individual slides was digitized at 20x magnification using an Aperio slide scanner resulting in a set of 4 .svs images. Each of the 4 .svs images were then digitally stitched together to constitute a pseudo-whole mount section (.tiff) using the program in [2]. Annotations of cancer presence on the pseudo-whole mount sections were made by an expert pathologist. Slice correspondences were established between the individual T2w MRI and stitched pseudo-whole mount sections by the program in [3] and checked for accuracy by an expert pathologist and radiologist. Deformable co-registration [4] was employed to spatially co-registered the corresponding radiologic and histopathologic tissue sections to map disease extent onto the corresponding MRI scans. Data collection and analysis was provided by Anant Madabhushi, PhD, Case Western Reserve University and Michael D. Feldman, MD, PhD, Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. This work was supported by NIH R01CA136535.
