Worldwide PET Utilisation

It is important to keep the PET community informed about the worldwide utilisation of PET in late phase clinical trials in oncology. For this purpose reviews of research databases in the UK and abroad will be performed regularly. A first iteration was completed in June 2009 and results were presented in a poster at the BNMS Autumn Meeting in September 2009. A second iteration is planned for the second quarter of 2010. It is envisaged that after its completion, a database and dashboard will be designed for better managing the information and to facilitate the comparison of results from subsequent iterations. The dashboard will allow PET research stakeholders to visualise the developments of UK PET research and compare it to other countries for different tumour types and applications.
