Optimizing your oncology trial through medical imaging
Imaging-based endpoints play a valuable role in oncology clinical trials. Quantifying the size and number of tumors visualized by imaging provides insights into drug efficacy much faster than relying on traditional clinical endpoints such as patient survival.
Use of imaging as a surrogate endpoint can therefore be a powerful means of demonstrating unmet clinical needs and ultimately accelerating approval of a new drug.
Imaging endpoint assessments are highly dependent on measurement techniques, assessment guidelines, available technology tools and image reviewer expertise. It is critical to avoid introducing bias or variability, which can jeopardize the identification of true safety and efficacy differences among treatment groups.
