This project will consider how institutionally supported policy and data infrastructure can help ensure management and reusability of sensitive imaging data through controlled access using XNAT.
Institutions across Australia have been building platforms to manage imaging data, which is often sensitive. In the clinical space, research practice is often married to clinical practice, using the same instruments and often the same patients. Depending on where an instrument is housed, data may come anonymized to various degrees, ranging from having almost all metadata removed for public data sets, to completely identifiable (linked or otherwise) data use for clinical reporting.
Who is this project for?
- Research organisations
- Peak bodies
- Infrastructure providers
- Commercial eInfrastructure providers
- Government (state and commonwealth)
What does this project enable?
This project will better enable sensitive data sharing standards across imaging infrastructure deployments and streamline the conversion of Human Ethics Research Committee (HERC) outcomes to technical implementations for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data.
