Advanced Imaging in Oncology Clinical Trials

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Drug Discovery & Development, Laboratory Technology,
  • Tuesday, November 02, 2021

The majority of imaging studies conducted during the course of oncology clinical trials consist of standard clinical examinations—CT scans, bone scans, brain scans, etc. However, in some cases it can be beneficial to make use of more sophisticated imaging assays to assess a drug’s mechanism of action, to find efficacy signals within sparse data, or to address questions related to treatment-specific effects.

This talk will discuss some of these techniques and their applications, including:

  • Perfusion imaging
  • Diffusion imaging
  • Molecular imaging
  • Multi-modality imaging
