The U.S. National Library of Medicine has made two datasets of postero-anterior (PA) chest radiographs available to foster research in computer-aided diagnosis of pulmonary diseases with a special focus on pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). The radiographs were acquired from the Department of Health and Human Services, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA and Shenzhen No. 3 People's Hospital in China. Both datasets contain normal and abnormal chest X-rays with manifestations of TB and include associated radiologist readings.
