ACR lab ensures PET research quality

The PET core laboratory of the American College of Radiology Clinical Research Center helps ensure that PET scanners used in multicenter clinical research trials meet acceptable standards, according to research done at the University of Pennsylvania. The finding was based on a review of the PET scanner qualification program of the American College of Radiology Imaging Network and reported by the PET core laboratory team. In the past three years, ACRIN has conducted a number of clinical trials with PET imaging endpoints. Several more are scheduled to begin soon. The PET qualification program requires sites intending to participate in such multicenter trials to demonstrate that the scanner set for use in the research protocol is correctly calibrated to produce high-quality images.
