MURA Dataset

What is MURA Dataset?

MURA is a large musculoskeletal radiograph dataset containing 40,561 images from 14,863 exams, where each exam is labeled normal or abnormal by radiologists themselves. Researchers can use this dataset to see if their models perform as accurate as radiologists on the task.

Download MURA Dataset in Python

Instead of downloading the MURA dataset in Python, you can effortlessly load it in Python via our open-source package Hub with just one line of code.

Load MURA Dataset Training Subset in Python

import hub
ds = hub.load("hub://activeloop/mura-train")

Load MURA Dataset Validation Subset in Python

import hub
ds = hub.load("hub://activeloop/mura-val")

MURA Dataset Structure

MURA Data Fields

  • images: tensor containing the image.
  • region: tensor containing name of one of the seven regions of studies such as elbow, finger, forearm, hand, humerus, shoulder, and wrist to which the image belongs to.
  • study: tensor containing the studies.
  • study_type: tensor containing the study type which can be either positive or negative.
  • patient_id: tensor containing id of the patient.

MURA Data Splits

  • The MURA dataset training set is composed of 11,184 patients, 13,457 studies, 36,808 images.
  • The MURA dataset validation set is composed of 783 patients, 1,199 studies, 3,197 images.

How to use MURA Dataset with PyTorch and TensorFlow in Python

Train a model on MURA dataset with PyTorch in Python

Let's use Hub's built-in PyTorch one-line dataloader to connect the data to the compute:
dataloader = ds.pytorch(num_workers=0, batch_size=4, shuffle=False)

Train a model on MURA dataset with TensorFlow in Python

dataloader = ds.tensorflow()

MURA Dataset Creation

Data Collection and Normalization Information
To evaluate models and to assess radiologist performance, additional labels from six certified Stanford radiologists were collected in a test set of 207 musculoskeletal exams. In this test set, the gold standard is a majority vote of a group of three radiologists.
