SNM clinical trials network expands phantom program for evaluating imaging centers
Date:4/14/2009

"The network's phantom program draws upon an SNM phantom imaging program that has been operational for over ten years. In addition, SNM maintains a group of experts who evaluate a center's image quality," said Paul E. Christian, chair of the Clinical Trials Network's Phantom Subcommittee and associate director of molecular imaging at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah. "Based on these phantom images, experts can help imaging centers by recommending adjustments in the image acquisition parameters to produce images of a very high quality."

The first phantom in use is the oncology phantom (designed primarily to support investigational oncology clinical trials), which was scanned at each of four test sitesthe University of Utah, University of Iowa, University of Pennsylvania and Mayo Clinicusing a standard imaging protocol. To test the resolution of the imaging equipment at each site, the phantom contained multiple simulated tumors of different sizes. Physicians at each of the four sites were able to evaluate the images and identify all the tumors.

Based on this initial success with the oncology phantom, the network is expanding its phantom imaging program by providing other phantoms to qualified sites in the network's registry. In this regard, a cardiac phantom is beginning testing at the four initial sites, and a brain phantom prototype is being developed and is anticipated to be available by June to assist a pharmaceutical company with site imaging evaluation for an upcoming phase 3 clinical trial. These three phantoms will be on display at the MI Gateway in the exhibit hall during SNM's 56th Annual Meeting, June 13󈝽, Toronto, Canada.
