Receiving MOST Data
De-identified* MOST datasets (available in SAS® v9.4, SAS® transport, or ASCII formats) will be sent via email using the UCSF Information Technology “Box” system, a UCSF free cloud-hosted
platform that allows users to easily share documents. The email will be addressed from MOST Online and will contain instructions to access the dataset.
You will be prompted to register your email address with UCSF and set a password. If you are unable to download data, MOST Online will contact you about an alternative transfer method.
Confirm that you have received the dataset by sending a message to MOSTOnline@psg.ucsf.edu

Receiving MOST Images via External Hard Drive
De-identified* MOST radiographs and MR images will be copied to a plug-and-play USB 2.0 external hard drive (FAT32 or NTFS format) and shipped to you via FedEx.
There is no charge for the shipment, but you must return the hard drive at your own expense within ten working days using a shipment service with tracking.
Since the hard drive must be returned, you will need to copy the images to a secure storage space of your own.
Radiographs of the entire cohort require approximately 500 GB and MRIs of the entire cohort require approximately 500 GB.
The hard drive will be shipped within a few days of your request, or MOST Online will notify you of any delay.
MOST Online will send an email to you with a shipment tracking number once the shipment has been processed.
You are asked to confirm that you have received the image set by sending a message to MOSTOnline@psg.ucsf.edu.
Keep the box and packaging for the return shipment. Detailed instructions for the return will be enclosed.
When shipping, send a message with the shipment tracking number to MOSTOnline@psg.ucsf.edu.
