The ISIC 2020 Challenge Dataset

Skin Lesion Analysis Towards Melanoma Detection

Official dataset of the SIIM-ISIC Melanoma Classification Challenge

The dataset contains 33,126 dermoscopic training images of unique benign and malignant skin lesions from over 2,000 patients. Each image is associated with one of these individuals using a unique patient identifier. All malignant diagnoses have been confirmed via histopathology, and benign diagnoses have been confirmed using either expert agreement, longitudinal follow-up, or histopathology. A thorough publication describing all features of this dataset is available in the form of a pre-print that has not yet undergone peer review.

The dataset was generated by the International Skin Imaging Collaboration (ISIC) and images are from the following sources: Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Medical University of Vienna, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Melanoma Institute Australia, University of Queensland, and the University of Athens Medical School.

The dataset was curated for the SIIM-ISIC Melanoma Classification Challenge hosted on Kaggle during the Summer of 2020.
