  • June 24, 2015

Medical imaging provides valuable efficacy and safety information in support of oncology clinical development. As biopharmaceutical companies continue to identify ways to improve, streamline and speed up product development, medical imaging plays a more significant role. Moreover, well-conceived and selective medical imaging approaches help control the ever increasing cost, complexity and duration of oncology clinical trials.

In this webinar, industry experts Sandra Chica, MD and Polina Voloshko, MD aim to describe novel medical imaging approaches and methodologies to help sponsors maximize clinical trial efficiency along the development pathway. Special emphasis will be placed on the assessment of tumor response and cardiac safety to support internal decision-making.

Webinar objectives include:

  • Understand the varied roles of medical imaging to assess efficacy and safety in Oncology clinical trials
  • Recognize the value of selective and tiered efficacy and safety medical imaging approaches for the various Oncology clinical development phases
  • Appreciate real-world examples of how customized medical imaging approaches can benefit Oncology clinical trial conduct and execution
