Largest open-source data set of brain MR exams of stroke patients now available for download

The largest open-source data set of brain MR exams of stroke patients is now available for download.

To date, 33 research groups around the world have downloaded the Anatomical Tracings of Lesions After Stroke (ATLAS) data set to develop and test algorithms that automatically process MR images of stroke patients.

"The fact that so many researchers from around the world were willing to share their stroke MR data with us to create a public resource reflects a recent and positive change in how researchers view scientific collaboration," Sook-Lei Liew, first author of the study and assistant professor at the Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute, told HCB News.

Data sharing has historically been hindered by competition between research groups and limited resources to collect data. However, emerging artificial intelligence computation methods require large data sets to train and test the algorithms.

"Funding agencies and scientific communities are now recognizing the value of team science and data sharing for furthering scientific advancements," said Liew. "This means that researchers are becoming more open with data sharing, and realizing that sharing data is the best way to generate these powerful large data sets."

Liew and her team plan to use the algorithms to perform a meta-analysis of thousands of stroke MRs, to better understand how lesions affect recovery. That information will help scientists identify biological markers that can predict which patients will respond to different rehabilitation therapies and personalized treatment plans.

Scientists currently have to manually draw boundaries around lesions, which would be an impossible task to perform on thousands of images. The algorithms under development will be able to automate that process.

Liew and her team are currently testing all existing algorithms that attempt to automate the process in order to determine which results in the greatest accuracy. They found that a toolbox called Lesion Identification with Neighborhood Data Analysis (LINDA) performed the best.

"However, even the best segmentation algorithms still fail on a number of lesion cases, so we strongly emphasize the use of visual inspection of all segmentation outputs, followed by manual quality control," said Liew. "Using an automated algorithm, followed by visual quality control and manual editing still saves considerable time over doing everything manually."
