Anonymizing Studies
If you tick 'Anonymize' the following patient and study information will be adjusted:
The patient's name is adjusted: the surname is replaced by 'Anonymous' and the first name is replaced by 6 digits.
The research number is adjusted to: ANON + Base29 series (unique in PACSonWEB)
The application number is adjusted to: ORD + Base29 series (unique in PACSonWEB)
The Study Instance UID is adjusted to: a UID, starting with 1.2.528.56.1006 (unique worldwide, as registered by Dobco Medical Systems)
If you check the option "Keep link with original study" ("pseudonymization"), a user has a link between the pseudonymized study and the original study if he has access to both studies within PACSonWEB.
