De-identification makes it possible for The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) adheres strictly to operate while meeting Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. Since publicly accessible databases and image archives using actual human images must not contain personal health information (PHI), de-identification is used to cleanse Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) images so no PHI remains.
