Advanced Imaging in Oncology, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

20:00 EDT 2 Aug 2016 | Marketwired

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 03, 2016) - On Wednesday, August 24, 2016, join BioTelemetry Research's Edward Ashton, PhD, Vice President, Oncology Imaging and Polina Voloshko, MD, Chief Medical Officer for a complimentary webinar on Advanced Imaging in Oncology. This webinar will address the general categories of advanced imaging applications, including:

A wide and growing range of imaging modalities and analysis methods are available for use in oncology and hematology clinical trials. This reflects the understanding that standard assessment of change in tumor size using CT may in some cases provide an incomplete picture of disease progression or response to therapy. Furthermore, the therapeutic options for patients with cancer now include increasingly complex combinations of medications, radiation therapy, and surgical intervention. Many of these treatments have important potential adverse cardiac effects and are likely to have significant effects on patient outcomes. As such, echocardiography is being used more and more extensively as a safety biomarker to assess potential cardiac toxicity from pharmacological agents.

Join this webinar as the speakers discuss the growing range of imaging modalities and analysis methods that are available for use in your clinical trials during oncology drug development.
