Policy on data management

Edinburgh Imaging & other organisational units support the data management & planning process.

Our projects are best approached in two stages, and all data should be recorded at each step. It is essential to follow this division, even if there is a time line overlap between these stages:

  • Stage 1, the Service Stage, often involves Person Identifiable Data (PID)
  • Stage 2, the Analysis Stage, should not involve PID, unless specifically required and agreed in ethics and consent documents.

For each step in each stage all information should be kept for future reference. It is advisable to maintain an index and catalogue to this information.
