NIH grant aims to standardize PET/CT scanners in clinical trials
The National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute (NCI) has awarded a five-year research project grant to identify harmonized reconstruction parameters for each currently-produced PET/CT scanner for use in clinical trials. The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s (SNMMI) Clinical Trials Network (CTN) will serve as an administrative coordinating body for the Image Reconstruction Harmonization Grant, which was awarded in August to the Universities of Iowa, Pennsylvania and Washington.
