WP10: MI - Patient to Population

The Working Group Medical Imaging- Patient to Population will define the construction plan for a research infrastructure for coordination of activities on medical imaging from patient to population. The aims of the future infrastructure are (a) to develop a long-term, strategic vision of the role of imaging platforms for clinical research; (b) to provide solutions for collaboration in Medical Imaging maximizing the opportunities for implementation of new diagnostic and interventional procedures; (c) to develop evidence based validation of novel procedures for clinical applications.

The objectives of this WG are

  • To survey existing European infrastructure for coordination and harmonization of imaging platforms in clinical trials and health technology assessment for imaging methods (HTA)
  • To identify the needs of the scientific community with regard to access to these infrastructures
  • To survey existing European infrastructure for population-based-imaging and minimally invasive image guided interventions
  • To identify the needs of the scientific community with regard to access to pan-European infrastructures for population-based-imaging and minimally invasive image guided intervention
  • To identify new emerging Medical Imaging developments, which may be considered for inclusion into the forward planning of the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure.
  • To determine the bottlenecks for providing access to Medical Imaging infrastructures.
  • To explore the feasibility of providing access to the identified infrastructures by proof-of-concept studies.
  • To develop a comprehensive, long-term plan for the implementation of European access to Medical Imaging infrastructures.
