Clinical trials and observer studies

Clinical studies are an essential part of the introduction of a new medical imaging technique into the clinical realm. Patient trials allow the evaluation of the actual clinical performance of a new medical imaging system or algorithm in real clinical conditions. In addition, patient trials are crucial to determine the suitability and performance of an existing imaging method for a new clinical application. Below you can find the trials that are being performed by our research group in cooperation with trial coordinators, radiologists, and clinicians from Radboudumc.
