MIMIC-CXR paper published!

News from: MIMIC-CXR Database v2.0.0.

Feb. 10, 2020

A journal article describing the MIMIC-CXR database was recently published in Scientific Data. The article provides detail regarding the collection, curation, and processing done in order to create the database. The article is open access and available online [1].

The database has also been preprocessed into compressed JPG format images, which have been made available on PhysioNet as the MIMIC-CXR-JPG Database. The database includes labels extracted from the free-text reports using publicly available tools. You can read more about the creation of this resource in our arXiv preprint [2].

Finally, we have created the mimic-cxr GitHub repository for collaborative code development on MIMIC-CXR [3]. The code used to generate MIMIC-CXR-JPG from MIMIC-CXR is available in the repository already. We welcome code contributions from all users, and we encourage discussion of the data via the GitHub issues.
