Join Trinity Urban and Cheryl Sadow for a one-hour webinar: “RECIST Overview and Other Response Measurement Criteria for Solid Tumors.” This webinar will provide an overview of tumor metrics used for solid tumor assessment and explain the rationale for standardized metrics and endpoint analysis.  It will include a discussion of the modifications in assessment criteria over the past few decades that have occurred as a result of a greater understanding of cancer genetics and different ways pharmaceutical agents can attack neoplasms. In addition, we will discuss how the criteria have changed to incorporate functional imaging for assessment of specific tumors.
