The draft for trial implementation of the IHE Teaching File and
Clinical Trial Export (TCE) profile is now available on the IHE
server.

It addresses the need to select images, series or studies (which
may also contain key image notes, reports, evidence documents and
presentation states) that need to be exported for teaching files
or clinical trials.

It defines an actor for making the export selection, which would
typically be grouped with an Image Display or Acquisition Modality,
and an actor for processing the selection, which is required to
support a configurable means of de-identifying the exported
instances. Additional options are provided for de-identification of
pixel data, remapping of identifiers to pseudonymous values, export
of additional teaching file information, and delaying export for a
variety of reasons.
