Getting Neuroimaging Right — How to Succeed in Neurodegenerative Clinical Trials

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Tuesday, December 13, 2022

An undisputed fact is that clinical trial delays are very costly. Any strategies that accelerate start-up are key to a study’s success in achieving timelines and expected budget. However, these drivers should not challenge the ultimate key objective of obtaining high-quality data without over-burdening the sites or the participants. In this webinar, the featured speakers will provide insights on how to address common challenges in neuroimaging studies.

This webinar includes:

  • An overview of key considerations that impact start-up cycle times in neuroimaging clinical studies with strategies and tactics to address them
  • How to adopt a centralised approach to reduce cycle times in qualifying sites anywhere in the world
  • How to reduce the burden to sites and patients

In addition to clinical operations experts, attendees will hear a site’s perspective about the key requirements to obtain high-quality data efficiently and quickly.

Register today to learn more about getting neuroimaging right and succeeding in neurodegenerative clinical trials.
