6 March 2018 USCT reference data base: conclusions from the first SPIE USCT data challenge and future directions

Ultrasound Computer Tomography is an exciting new technology mostly aimed at breast cancer imaging. Due to the complex interaction of ultrasound with human tissue, the large amount of raw data, and the large volumes of interest, both image acquisition and image reconstruction are challenging. Following the idea of open science, the long term goal of the USCT reference database is establishing open and easy to use data and code interfaces and stimulating the exchange of available reconstruction algorithms and raw data sets of different USCT devices. The database was established with freely available and open licensed USCT data for comparison of reconstruction algorithms, and will be maintained and updated. Additionally, the feedback about data and system architecture of the scientists working on reconstruction methods will be published to help to drive further development of the various measurement setups.
