Master study copies

If a master study is deleted all shared versions of the study will also be deleted however, if a shared study is deleted only that copy of the study will be deleted. In most workflows you can determine if the study is a master copy by looking at it’s ‘Study Storage Details’ found in the study’s audit trail. If the ‘STORAGE_NS’ matches the ‘PHI_NS’ it is extremely likely this is the master copy of the study. If they don’t match and the audit trail doesn’t report any movement of worklists it is likely the study is a shared copy.
