Typical use

John wants to de-identify 12 dynamic PET/CT exams, and put them on his USB thumb drive.


John wish to use the default anonymization settings.

Performing the task

John followed these steps:




The patients will be named PAT-0001, PAT-0002, …  (he could have used the web interface to change naming rules to initials, or to give each patient any name he wanted).

If John later adds data to this PET/CT data set, say from an MR, these patients will be named identically.

Of course, no data that could identify the patient is stored on the USB drive.
