Protocol Approval Process
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 submitting your study to the Human Subject Research Protocol portal.
Your protocol and study documents will be reviewed for feasibility, the radiology resources reqired, 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, radiologist, and several radiology technologists.
Our Department supports the following tumor response measurement protocols for cancer trials. These technical measurement techniques are integrated into our clinical workflow. The following tumor response criteria analyses are currently supported by our Faculty:
RECIST 1.0, RECIST 1.1, irRC, Cheson, RANO, CNS
