Medical Image De-Identification Automation and Validation

June 07, 2021 01:00 p.m. - 02:00 p.m. ET
Virtual

The theme of June’s NCI Imaging and Informatics Community Webinar will focus on DICOM medical image de-identification (MIDI). Patient privacy rules require the removal of protected health information (PHI) prior to sharing medical images publicly. With the growing volume of imaging data, manually removing PHI is inefficient. In this presentation, speakers will disclose how their teams assessed the accuracy of automated de-identification algorithms and cloud services in removing PHI.

“A DICOM Data Set for Evaluation of Medical Image De-Identification” |1:00–1:20|

Dr. Fred Prior, the Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, will share the Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) team’s efforts to develop a DICOM data set that can be used to evaluate the performance of de-identification algorithms.

“Medical Image De-Identification Using Cloud Services” |1:20–1:40|

Dr. Benjamin Kopchick and Ms. Dina Mikdadi from the Deloitte Biomedical Data Science team will present on the use of a cloud service for automated MIDI. Their team tested the Google Cloud Platform’s Healthcare API service leveraging data sets with synthetic PHI generated by the TCIA team.

This event is free and open to the public.
