How to de-identify medical image data

One of the dominant methods in automatic image-based diagnostics is Deep Learning. This type of algorithm must be fed large volumes of medical data to learn how to spot suspicious abnormalities on medical images, such as a tumor or a fracture. The more data you feed into the algorithm, the more accurate the algorithm gets. The question is: how to deidentify medical data before you feed it to Deep Learning algorithms?
