MIDAS—Research Medical Imaging Data in the University and the NHS

The meeting will be a forum to discuss issues affecting medical imaging data access and sharing of research medical images in Scotland. It would cover various aspects like information governance, data transfer and data anonymisation. There is a key strategic need for a national discussion on these topics between NHS and Universities in Scotland. The aim is to have an intensive discussion after some keynotes and it is hoped that the outcome will be a willingness at a high level to facilitate a solution to this medical imaging data challenge.

SINAPSE, the Scottish Imaging Network - A Platform for Scientific Excellence, is a consortium of six Scottish universities; Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, and Stirling. Its aim is to create a strong dynamic network for strategic research development in brain imaging. More information in the web page: www.sinapse.ac.uk

Target audience: This meeting is intended to bring together both NHS and HEIs representatives including experts in the different topics involved (data transfer, data protection, etc.).
