Fully anonymise DICOM, except for specific tags

Post by juaneta »

Hi there,
Is there a way to anonymise a DICOM image, but retain a specific tag e.g. Patient Date of Birth.
I need to completely anonymise our DICOMS for clinical research, but retain one identifier (e.g. DOB) as a check.
Thanks,
Juaneta

Hello Juaneta,
It is not possible in current version. There are some options in the settings: Tools/Options/Anonymize.
But we will add this feature in our TODO list: Add ability to exclude DICOM tags from anonymizing

Hi there,

Thanks so much for your response. Are you able to ascertain when I should start keeping an eye out for the new feature?
Thanks!
