The page requests your name, company, email, Case ID (which will be used, and integrated into the Reference Number for any physical or digital model you receive) and other important information.
Once you fill out this form, hit “Submit” to relay your information to the Lazarus 3D team. Once you click “Submit”, you will be taken to a secure, HIPAA compliant web server which you can use to upload your anonymous patient radiology data
Before uploading data, first double check that the data has been anonymized and does not contain any personally identifiable information from your patient, like their name or social security number.
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has published tools for the removal of PHI from patient data. The RSNA recommends using these well-vetted and supported tools for anonymization of patient records.
Disclaimer: This document is provided for educational purposes only. It does not constitute a recommendation from Lazarus 3D with regards to patient data management or PHI management.
Download and Install the RSNA Anonymizer: The RSNA Anonymizer is available online here, where it is labeled “Anonymizer-installer.jar”. The latest version is 2021.03.13.
Import the scan into Anonymizer: Verify you have the latest Java Runtime environment installed on your computer. 1) Install the program by double clicking the “Anonymizer” executable Jar file. 2) Run the program, click on the “Directory” tab. 3) Navigate to the folder containing the DICOM files for the scan you want to anonymize, then click “Import”. The process progress will be displayed on the Results window. 4) Wait until the process finishes, and “Done” is displayed at the bottom of the “Results” section.
Navigate to the storage folder, which is shown on the top right of the Results window on Anonymizer. (On PC: C:\Anonymizer\Storage). Verify you select the right data set making sure the “Date Modified” matches the date and time at which you ran the anonymization process.
Next, you may proceed with data upload. The Lazarus 3D system will only accept compressed (Zipped) folders, so to upload the radiology data, you must first compress it. Next, find the folder containing the patient scan images. This folder is typically labeled DICOM or is labeled with a long string of numbers.
On Windows®: First left click this folder, then right click on the folder and pick the option to “Send To” – “Compressed (Zipped) Folder” as shown.
On MacOS®: Right click (or click with two fingers), on the folder and pick the option “Compress” as shown.
This will create a file with the extension “.zip” which can be uploaded to the Lazarus 3D HIPPA compliant server by either dragging and dropping the file, or by clicking the “upload” button and then navigating to the .zip file you wish to upload.
Once you have uploaded the required information, Lazarus 3D’s team will reach out to you with a quote for your customized patient digital and physical model and confirm the details of your order.
