Clinical Trials Methodology Workshop  

Jan. 8–14, 2022

Coronado Island Marriott Resort and Spa Coronado, CA

Application Deadline: July 1

Over the course of the six-day Clinical Trials Methodology Workshop (CTMW), participants will learn how to develop protocols for the clinical evaluation of imaging modalities. Each trainee will be expected to develop a protocol for a clinical study, ready to include in an application for external funding.

Topics to be featured include:

• Principles of Radiology Study Design

• Review of Statistical Concepts for Radiology

• Taxonomy of Imaging Trials

• Introduction to Cost Effectiveness Analysis

• FDA Regulation of Imaging Modalities

• Multi-Reader, Multi-Modality Studies

Applicants will undergo a competitive selection process. Familiarity with basic concepts and techniques of statistics and study design is required of all applicants. Successful applicants will participate in advance preparation, didactic sessions, one-on-one mentoring, small group discussion sessions, self study and individual protocol development.

There are no fees associated with this workshop and participants are responsible for all travel expenses and hotel accommodations. For applications and additional information, visit RSNA.org/CTMW or contact RSNA staff at dor@rsna.org with questions.
