Using Imaging Biomarkers to Demonstrate Efficacy in Clinical Trials: Trends and Challenges

Interest in imaging biomarkers and their use in clinical trials has literally

exploded over the past several years. This is evidenced by the proliferation of

symposia and scientific conferences around the world that focus on this topic. The

National Institutes of Health and various international societies have formed

committees and launched ambitious initiatives to promote the area and advance

knowledge about the use of imaging biomarkers in clinical research.

Additionally, companies have emerged that specialize in this application of

imaging, and a unique service category is forming.
