CT Image Limit Increased to 15,000 Participants
Posted on Feb. 15, 2017, 4:47 p.m. in NLST
Each NLST project may now receive CT images from up to 15,000 participants (of the investigator’s choice).
Investigators are encouraged to consider taking fewer than 15,000, because:
- Many applications do not need that many.
- The maximum total data size for 15,000 people is very high (8 terabytes).
- The number of available screen-detected lung cancer cases (~600) and benign nodule cases (~9000) is limited.
