deid

Anonymization toward De-identifiction (deid)

This Python module is intended for basic coding of medical images, which means “cleaning” image headers and pixel data, and integrating with your own functions to replace with anonymous identifiers. Per HIPAA, this process is technically called “anonymization,” meaning we did our best effort.

What does this module do?

What does this module not do?

For dicom data, we use pydicom and for nifti we (will) use nibabel.

Where do I go from here?

If you are new to deid or pydicom, we recommend you start with the getting started pages.
