Ethical considerations in medical photography :Avinash Supe

"A profession must observe ethical standards; otherwise it will lack respect, credibility and may also lay itself open to legal penalties. A medical photographer is part of a team working for the benefit of a patient and, thereby, the society. The end product of his activities is the photographic record. The photographer must ensure that the end product of his photography is treated with the same respect as is accorded to other records of the patient"

"For photography of internal organs at operation or in the post-mortem room as well as in endoscopic, pathological or microscopic documentation, permission of the patient is not necessary, as the identity is not revealed. To maintain the anonymity of these images, it may be wise not to record the patient's name with the stored image. Images are catalogued with an image number and date"
