Donate clinical images and support medical big data research!

Medical Data Donors e.V. seeks to build an annotated image database, which will serve as a basis for medical big data research and the development of reliable machine learning algorithms. You can support us by donating your medical image data or by shopping at Amazon Smile.

Data awareness

After data donations have been made, we maintain the relationship with the patients and let them know at all times what is happening to their data.

Data annotation

In order to annotate the donated data, we follow a crowdsourcing approach which is based on gamification techniques.

Patient privacy

To ensure patient privacy, we comply with the EU data protection laws. If in doubt, patients can revoke the permission to use their data at any time.


Medical Data Donors aims supporting medical big data research. However, we also increase awareness of patients what is happening to their data. Therefore, we desire patients to willingly donate their data for research. During the donation, patients get access to a transaction number that can be used to revoke the permission to use the data…

Donation, but how?

Medical Data Donors is actively asking patients to donate their data after an exam without pressure after the diagnosis is secured. We employ envelopes in which data and an respective informed consent form are submitted to our offices.
