Welcome to the the CSAW-M dataset homepage

This page includes the files and metadata related to the CSAW-M, a curated dataset of mammograms with expert assessments of the masking of cancer.

CSAW-M is collected from over 10,000 individuals and annotated with potential masking. In contrast to the previous approaches which measure breast image density as a proxy, our dataset directly provides annotations of masking potential assessments from five specialists. We trained deep learning models on CSAW-M to estimate the masking level, and showed that the estimated masking is significantly more predictive of screening participants diagnosed with interval and large invasive cancers — without being explicitly trained for these tasks — than its breast density counterparts.

How to access the dataset:

If you want to get access to the data, please use the "Request access to files" option above (currently, non-Swedish researchers need to have a general figshare account to be able to to request access). We will ask you to agree to our terms of conditions and provide us with some information about what you will use the data for. We will then receive the request and process it, after which you would be able to download all the files.
