American College of Radiology Imaging Network Clinical Trials

The American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) is an international cooperative group, headquartered in Philadelphia with biostatistical headquarters at Brown University. It is sponsored by the CIP as well as philanthropies.

ACRIN’s goal is — through clinical trials of diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapeutic technologies — to generate information that will lengthen and improve the quality of the lives of cancer patients. ACRIN's clinical trials address both existing and emerging technologies as they apply to cancer screening, diagnosis, staging, imaging as a biomarker, and image-guided treatment. Imaging clinical trials conducted by ACRIN are carefully designed for statistical validity and the protocols are reviewed and approved by the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP).
