Event Details

The Partners Clinical Image Bank (CIB) portal enables researchers to access registries of expertly curated, phenotypically characterized medical images and associated clinical data extracted from the Partners electronic medical records.

      Access to the Clinical Image Bank is available to all with a Partners logon who have registered to use the Research Patient Data Registry (RPDR) and who accept the terms of the Data Use Agreement.  The portal enables full exploration and download of de-identified clinical information extracted from the RPDR and quantitative MR imaging metrics. Users with IRB approval who wish to download the fully identifiable clinical data and native DICOM medical images may do so easily.

     The first registry to be made available is a collection of pediatric brain MR images that includes a cohort of neonates with clinically confirmed hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, a cohort of “normative” children imaged between the ages of 0-6 years of age with no known CNS pathology and a cohort of children imaged between the ages of 0-6 years of age that have a neuropsychiatric disorder of indeterminate severity.  In addition to secure access to the DICOM image data, the portal allows interaction with and download of extracted quantitative metrics from the Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) maps calculated from the Diffusion Weighted Images for many of the cases.  Each HIE case also has detailed perinatal clinical course information including maternal risk factors and clinical outcomes.

    Dr. Gollub, one of the developers of the CIB will demonstrate the use of this new software tool and provide a guided tour of the available data.  She would like to gather your input on features and data sets that could be added that would be of greatest value to you in your work.
