Radiology imaging data now integrated with STARR

Researchers can now request large scale radiology data from hospitals along with Epic data

Research IT launches phase I of STARR-Radio, a new platform ability to bring Radiology data to Stanford researchers

Sep 3, 2018: Research IT has built a cloud scale radiology imaging repository that brings data from Hospital picture archiving and communication system (PACS) into a research archive. Stanford has half a petabyte of historical radiology data and ~20% of this data is now in the research archive as part of phase I and we continue to add the rest. The data contains different modalties e.g. X-rays, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, etc. Research IT has developed robust and scalable de-ID pipelines for X-rays, MRI and CT as part of phase I release and is continuing to build out for rest of the modalities. Researchers can request concierge service at the Research Informatics Center for access to the imaging data.

STARR-Radio is being developed in collaboration with Research IT faculty committee and is made possible by Stanford School of Medicine Office of Research.
