The MIMIC Chest X-ray (MIMIC-CXR) Database is a large publicly available dataset of chest radiographs with free-text radiology reports.

300,000+ images from over 60,000 patients

The large size of MIMIC-CXR allows for unprecedented studies in automated radiograph analysis.

Multimodal data

Expert radiologist interpretations allow for deeper understanding of each image.
