Imaging in Clinical Trials –
Unique Compliance Challenges

For all clinical trials, operating in compliance with the federal regulations, the agreements, the investigational plan, and the requirements of the IRB are critical to protect human subjects and to demonstrate quality and integrity of the resulting data. When imaging is introduced into the trial, a new layer of complexity is added, and additional considerations with regard to helping sites maintain compliance with the imaging requirements should be implemented. Join us to learn how!

Here's what you'll learn from this recorded webinar:

The challenges that will occur when you introduce imaging in the trial, and how to manage:

  • The increase in complexity of the protocols
  • The addition of new stakeholders in the imaging process
  • The addition of a new technology environment – storing, transmitting, and the unique challenge of image numbers and size

How to manage compliance challenges and invoke change dynamics:

  • What non- compliance looks like
  • The results of people not following the specifics of the protocols
  • How to manage personnel and equipment changes during the trials
  • Managing rogue reporting

Best Practices to make sure that you are in compliance:

  • How to write protocols to stay in compliance
  • Techniques for monitoring onsite compliance
  • Approaches to take when you find you are out of compliance

Who should attend?

  • Clinical Trial Managers
  • Clinical Researchers
  • Clinical Research Associates
  • Clinical Affairs Managers
  • Clinical Affairs Directors
  • Scientific Directors
  • Product Managers
  • Regulatory Managers
  • Anyone responsible for clinical trials or involved in setting up imaging protocols 
  • Anyone considering imaging in trials and could use support for internal stakeholders
