QUESTION TYPE: Most Strongly Supported
- An fMRI contains information that a patient might want to keep private.
- So does a genetic profile.
- An fMRI of a skull can allow us to identify the patient’s face.
- A genetic profile can be linked to a patient only by looking at labels or records.
ANALYSIS: It’s fairly strongly supported that an fMRI allows identification to be done in a different way than by using a genetic profile. We’re told clearly that genetic profiles can only ID a patient through labels and records, not pictures.
- We’re not told anything about fMRI labeling.
- CORRECT. An fMRI can identify a patient by creating their picture from a skull shape. Weird. You can’t do that with a genetic profile. The only way to identify a genetic profile is through labeling.
- We have no idea. Maybe the privacy controls on genetic profiles are quite good despite how easy it could be to match the profiles to patients in theory.
- We don’t know. If this were true then there might not be any reason to do fMRIs.
- We’re not told what patients think. I don’t imagine most people realize they can be identified with an image of their skull.
