In September 2008, the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging created the Nuclear Medicine Clinical Trial Group, LLC to assist sponsors in effectively incorporating molecular imaging agents in multicenter trials. NMCTG aims to ensure that high-quality imaging is conducted to support drug or diagnostic clinical studies by offering a variety of proven tools developed by the Clinical Trials Network.

The NMCTG was awarded a grant for the clinical management of two international, multi-center, academic trials in prostate cancer imaging from Movember (Australia). Both studies are using the Keosys Imagys platform housed at the SNMMI home offices (Reston, Va) for image uploads. Electronic Case Report Forms (CRFs) have been developed for both studies and uploaded into Imagys for clinical trial data reporting and management. The NMCTG is using the Clinical Trials Network’s unique oncology chest phantom to perform annual scanner validations on all study PET/CT scanners in both studies.
(1) PET / MRI Pre-Radiotherapy for Post-Prostatectomy Salvage (PROPS): 18F-Choline
(2) Evaluation of AR (Androgen Receptors) Expression in Progressive Metastatic Prostate Cancer Patients Treated with Anti-androgenic Drug: 18F-DHT (18F-16beta-fluoro-5alpha-dihydrotestosterone)
Duration for both studies is two years. Upon completion of all image review and data collection, a final report will be prepared and submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
