The Department of Radiology welcomes opportunities for collaborative research. We strongly encourage principal investigators and study coordinators to involve radiology at the beginning of the protocol and budget approval process. This helps ensure that the appropriate professional and technical services are available for your study, minimizing any delays in startup.
The protocol review process begins with the submission of the Radiology Protocol Submission eForm. You will need a UCD login and password to access this site. If you are not a part of the University system, please complete and e-mail this Excel version of the Radiology Protocol Submission Form to the Research Coordinator.
As part of the review, your protocol and study documents will be reviewed for feasibility and pricing. The length of the review depends on the complexity of the study. Most studies only require review by the Research Coordinator, whereas a complex study could include review by a Physicist, a Radiologist, and several Radiology Technologists.
