The CCIR provides a full range of biomedical imaging services to support clinical research projects. These services include:
(1) Pre-study services that help investigators design, set up, and kick off the study;
(2) Coordinating services, including Scanning, that provide assistance in executing, monitoring and evaluating the study; and,
(3) Information Technology management services to handle, track, and process imaging data.
Coordinating services related to an imaging project are customizable - ranging from “pre-study negotiations” to “sponsor close-out visits”. These services are provided in the CCIR through interactions with the Clinical Research Laboratory (CRL), a highly-trained project coordination group that resides in the department of Radiology. The mission of the CRL staff is to with your project team members to ensure study protocols are followed and that your participant’s experience during the research study is a pleasant one.
