Basic Ethical Standards of Medical Photography

The image is the exclusive property of the patient and part of his/her dignity. He/She may share it with you, as a whole or part of it, always having the right to consult, copy, modify or delete the stored information.
The reason for taking a picture of a medical process must be ethically honest (for better patient care, share knowledge, by teaching or research ...).
Proper authorization must be granted by the patient via the Consent form that should be stored. If there is an emergency, it must be requested afterwards.
The photo should be framed in a way to exclusively reveal the area of medical interest. If necessary cover other exposed areas (sheets, clothing, etc) This is mandatory for under age patients.
Do not photograph the patient’s face. If this is not possible, then it must be anonymized by cropping (blurring is not recommended).
Personal bodily markings such as moles, scars, tattoos should not be included in the images you share ... unless they are the subject matter; then the frame will be exclusively of these elements.
Do not include any patients’ data in your images, their name or any of their affiliation data (address, phone number, date of birth, etc.).
Avoid showing logos or images that can identify the Centre, Hospital or even country of assistance.
Never photograph under-age patients without parents' authorization.
If you photograph on-screen reports or results, they must not include any data of the patient or health center; crop or trim them afterwards if necessary.
