Virtual Workshop on Medical Image De-Identification (MIDI)

May 22, 2023 - May 23, 2023

Do you work with medical images that contain potentially sensitive data elements? Do these image formats include DICOM? If so, register to attend this workshop! You’ll learn about:

  • the best practices/recommendations for conducting sensitive data removal, known as “de-identification,” as identified by the MIDI Task Group (convened by NCI).
  • approaches to conventional image de-identification in the United States, the European Union, and Canada.
  • approaches to image de-identification by industry.
  • the roles that statistical risk analysis, de-facing (or de-identification of facial features), and artificial intelligence (AI) play in de-identification.

Medical imaging data is valuable for disease diagnose, treatment, and research. However, medical images often contain sensitive information such as personally identifiable information or protected health information. Thus, de-identifying this information is essential to allow data sharing.

This workshop will be hosted by the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT). For information about the workshop, please contact the NCI CBIIT MIDI Group.
