NVCI to Participate in Clinical Imaging Trials

June 12, 2008 – Nevada Cancer Institute’s (NVCI) Diagnostic Imaging Department said it has been approved to participate in clinical imaging trials by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN).

“This is yet another step towards our goal of becoming a comprehensive cancer center as designated by the National Cancer Institute,” said Dr. Michael Gach, director of NVCI’s research imaging facility. “Because of our relationship with Desert Radiologists, we were able to present a multidisciplinary, integrated and invested team of board-certified radiologists with research credentials that work seamlessly with our outstanding imaging technologists. Participation in ACRIN should help strengthen NVCI’s position to become a corresponding member of the National Cancer Institute/Association of American Cancer Institute’s Imaging Response Assessment Teams (IRATs). ACRIN and IRAT members include the elite research imaging facilities battling cancer.”

The ACRIN is part of a grant awarded to the American College of Radiation (ACR) from the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health. NVCI’s diagnostic imaging facility is accredited by ACR.
