  "abstract": "<p>Observation data for the <a href=\"\">LoDoPaB-CT challenge</a>, which asks to reconstruct&nbsp;CT images of the human lung&nbsp;from (simulated) low photon count measurements.</p>\n\n<p>The setting is identical to the one of&nbsp;the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">LoDoPaB-CT dataset</a>&nbsp;(documented in this <a href=\"\">Data Descriptor article</a>), which is supposed to be employed&nbsp;for training learned methods.&nbsp;This challenge set contains observations for a separate&nbsp;set of patients.</p>\n\n<p>Python utilities&nbsp;for accessing this challenge set and creating the submission file are&nbsp;available at <a href=\"\"></a>. The LoDoPaB-CT dataset for training&nbsp;can be accessed using the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">DIVal</a>&nbsp;python library (<a href=\"\"></a>).</p>\n\n<p>Like for the LoDoPaB-CT dataset, reconstructions from the&nbsp;<a href=\"\">LIDC/IDRI dataset</a>&nbsp;are used as a basis for this challenge set.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>The ZIP file&nbsp;contains multiple <a href=\"\">HDF5</a>&nbsp;files. Each HDF5 file contains one&nbsp;HDF5 dataset named <code>&quot;data&quot;</code>, that provides a number of&nbsp;samples (128 except for the last file). For example, the <code>n</code>-th&nbsp;observation sample&nbsp;is stored in the file&nbsp;<code>&quot;observation_challenge_%03d.hdf5&quot;</code>&nbsp;where <code>&quot;%03d&quot;</code> is <code>floor(n / 128)</code>, at row <code>(n mod 128)</code>&nbsp;of <code>&quot;data&quot;</code>.</p>\n\n<p>For this challenge set no&nbsp;patient IDs are provided (in contrast to the fully public parts of the LoDoPaB-CT dataset), since the reconstruction algorithm should not rely on this information.</p>\n\n<p><em>Acknowledgements</em></p>\n\n<p>Johannes Leuschner, Maximilian Schmidt and Daniel Otero Baguer acknowledge the support by the Deutsche<br>\nForschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the framework of GRK 2224/1 &ldquo;&pi;3: Parameter Identification &ndash; Analysis,<br>\nAlgorithms, Applications&rdquo;.
