Data Transfer

The preferred method for transfer of imaging data from PET Centres participating in NCRI associated multicentre trials is via electronic transfer. All image data must be transferred in DICOM format to the NCRI PET Core Lab.

This procedure applied to accredited PET Centres participating in the following multicentre trials:

PET Centres submitting data as part of the trials should ensure the data is anonymised and in DICOM Part 10 format. The submitted images must include the attenuation corrected PET, non-attenuation corrected PET and the CT. Please refer to the specific Trial Protocol for more detailed information.

The recommended method for electronic data transfer from NHS PET Centres is via the NHS Secure File Transfer Service. All other sites with appropriate internet access should use the NCRI Core Lab SFTP server. Further details and instructions can be provided upon request.

Data submitted on DICOM CD should be sent to the NCRI Trials Physicist:

NCRI PET Core Lab
PET Imaging Centre
First Floor
Lambeth Wing
St Thomas' Hospital
London SE1 7EH
