Digital Mammography Example Dataset Documenation
This dataset includes 20,000 digital and 20,000 film screening mammograms performed between January 2005 and December 2008 from women included in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium. Some women contribute more than one examination to the dataset. These data are recommended for use in teaching data analysis or epidemiological concepts. Because they represent only a small sample of mammography data available from BCSC they should not be used to conduct primary research. Researchers interested in conducting analyses of digital mammography performance can submit a proposal to the BCSC to gain access to a more complete sample of BCSC data (see Submitting a Proposal & Working with the BCSC).
The following source must be cited when using this dataset:
"Data collection and sharing was supported by the National Cancer Institute-funded Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (HHSN261201100031C). A list of the BCSC investigators and procedures for requesting BCSC data for research purposes are provided at: http://breastscreening.cancer.gov/."
Information about receiving data from the BCSC may also be included in the methods section using language such as:
"Data for this study was obtained from the BCSC Data Resource. More information regarding this resource is available at: http://breastscreening.cancer.gov/."
