📢 8 December 2022: The PI-CAI challenge has been featured in the December 2022 issue of RSIP Vision - Computer Vision News  and the RSNA 2022: Daily Bulletin. Thanks to Ralph Anzarouth and Melissa Silverberg for the shout-out!


📢 29 November 2022: Open Development Phase of the PI-CAI challenge has now concluded! All teams can continue to make submissions to the Open Development Phase - Tuning Leaderboard, albeit at a reduced rate (once per week per verified user). Meanwhile, the Open Development Phase - Testing Leaderboard will reopen in early 2023 and accept submissions on a per-application basis to the PI-CAI consortium via e-mail. Please check out this forum thread for more details.

📢 20 October 2022: The PI-CAI challenge will be featured in an upcoming webinar from the MICCAI Special Interest Group for Challenges, titled "How to Run a Challenge?"on 25 October 2022. See you there!




📢 22 September 2022: Deadline for submissions to the Open Development Phase - Tuning Leaderboard has been extended to 20 November 2022 (from 20 October 2022, before). Preliminary results and the top 5 teams of the PI-CAI challenge will be announced in our oral presentation at this year's 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2022) in Chicago, USA



📢 5 September 2022: Participants can now submit a maximum of 1 AI algorithm per day per verified user to the Open Development Phase - Tuning Leaderboard, instead of 1 AI algorithm per week per team like before. All participants must still form teams (even if the team is composed of a single participant), and each participant can only be a member of a single team.

📢 8 August 2022: The PI-CAI challenge is now preregistered in compliance with NLM-NIH and BIAS reporting guidelines! To learn more about our end-to-end study design, visit: 

📢 16 June 2022: GitHub repos with our source code for preprocessing prostate MRI data archivestraining baseline diagnostic AI models, and evaluating lesion detection and diagnosis performance are now live!

📢 12 June 2022Open Development Phase - Tuning Leaderboard is now open for AI algorithm submissions! Public Training and Development Dataset v2.0 is now online! Learn more about all the considerations that we've made to curate and release the all-new largest public training dataset (1500 cases) for prostate cancer detection in MRI: pi-cai.grand-challenge.org/DATA/.
