Radiation experts unite to streamline cancer clinical trials

Regulations on radiation exposure have been a critical bottleneck in starting up new cancer trials, but now radiation experts from the Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (link is external)(ECMC) network – a joint initiative between Cancer Research UK and the UK’s four health departments – are pioneering a new streamlined system to reduce the time taken to set up clinical trials involving radiotherapy and other forms of ionising radiation, such as PET scans.
