dc.description.abstract The MCO study whole slide image collection consists of 1500 digitised tissue slides of colorectal cancers. From 1994 to 2010, the Molecular and Cellular Oncology (MCO) Study group conducted a study of individuals undergoing treatment for colorectal cancer. For the study, they systematically collected tissue samples and clinical and pathological information from more than 1500 people who had tumours surgically removed from their large bowel. This collection represents one typical section from each tumour case, stained with Hematoxylin and eosin, and scanned using a x40 objective. The resolution of the digitised images approaches that visible under an optical microscope - more than 100,000 dpi. At this resolution, each image is around 2 Gigabytes, bringing the size of the 1500 images in the MCO Whole Slide Image Collection to 3 Terabytes. The MCO whole slide image collection is now available on the Intersect Australia Research Data Storage Infrastructure (RDSI) Node. Originating source(s): MCO research group, UNSW (1993-2011) en_US

unsw.relation.projectDesc The MCO study is a prospective collection of tissues and clinicopathological data from over 1500 individuals undergoing curative resection for colorectal cancer from 1994 to 2010.Clinical and pathological data has been collected on all cases, including clinical follow-up to 5 years collected annually. This data is stored in a relational database, along with key genetic data on all cases, including microsatellite instability and CIMP status, mutation analysis for BRAF and KRAS, and immunohistochemical assessment of tumours.
