In November 2011, Geoff Hayden (of Emergency Ultrasonography fame) sparked a dialogue with Ben Smith and me about de-identifying ultrasound clips. this led to a lot of hard work on Ben’s part and it really paid off. Ben’s come up with a great resource for those of us who use ultrasound video clips for education and want to make sure there are no patient identifiers displayed (or hidden) in the video files.
Here are some of the highlights of Emergency Ultrasound Video Editing:
- it’s free
- it’s multiplatform (mac or windows)
- it can batch de-identify all files in a folder (cropping multiple files automatically)
