  • Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The purpose of most clinical trials really boils down to a single question: Does my drug work? If you’re feeling really ambitious, you may add a second question: How does my drug work? Medical imaging is one important tool for answering these questions, but imaging can be complicated, and mistakes are sometimes made. When things go wrong between you and your imaging provider, it’s not easy to determine the reason.

Join BioTelemetry Research’s Ed Ashton, Ph.D., Vice President of Oncology Imaging and Danielle Lewis, M.S., PMP, Global Operations Account Manager, for this educational, complimentary webinar. This webinar will discuss real-world scientific and operational examples of errors that can occur during your imaging clinical trial, and address how you can anticipate, but most of all avoid them.
