Topic: Anti-Tumor Clinical Trial Design: Error Sources and Countermeasures for the Imaging Endpoint Process
Speaker: Dr. Mari Anzai Micron, Inc. Imaging Service Department
Time: Aug 24, 2020 16:00 Japan time (15:00 in Beijing time）
In the field of developing anti-tumor drugs, imaging endpoints, such as the objective response rate (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS), etc., are assessed using medical images, namely CT, MRI, and PET, have become widely used in clinical trials. Acquiring the imaging endpoints includes scanning to obtain images, assessing the image data, and so on. During scanning, imaging manufacturer discrepancies, scanning parameter settings, and other factors may result in imaging endpoint errors. On the other hand, during the assessment, the reader’s subjective judgment or assessment bias may also result in endpoint errors. The standardization of scanning and assessment is necessary to avoid errors and acquire accurate study results. This lecture will focus on the source of errors in the results and the corresponding resolutions.
