Image submission procedure prospective
Image Submission Procedure(Prospective)

  • Provide Complete Image Data Set

    • After Each Timepoint

    • Submit Within 2 - 5 Days of Scan

    • Digital Data Must be Submitted

    • Include Data Transmittal Form

Blinding/Masking ProceduresFilm and Digital

  • Blinding Film Data

    • Black paint pen are provided to blind/mask sensitive data

    • Do not place tapes or stickers on the films.

      • Only use labels provided by Bio-Imaging

      • Do not place labels over the imaging parameters on the film.

  • Blinding Digital Data

    • Digital data should be anonymized (masked) prior to archiving, by utilizing the study specific Investigator Number, Patient Number and Patient Initials.

Blinding/Masking Procedures(continued)

  • Bio-Imaging will strictly maintain patient confidentiality at all times.

  • In the event that unmasked data is unintentionally submitted, Bio-Imaging will remove patient identifiers.

    • A Quality Notification Form (QNF) will be forwarded to the site
