The Future Development of Imaging Biomarkers

  • 0
  • 22 Jun
An imaging biomarker is a quantifiable anatomic, physiologic or metabolic parameter derived from an image that is an indicator of a particular disease. Furthermore a biomarker is a parameter which can be used at an indicator of the progression of a disease or medical condition or the effect of treatment. A number of public-private partnerships are working together to develop novel imaging biomarkers. One of these is the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). A few years ago the ADNI started a clinical trial (ADN1-1) that involved 57 sites with 200 normal subjects followed for three years, 400 subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) followed for 2 years and 200 subjects with Alzheimer's disease (AD) followed for 2 years. Participants receive clinical exams, cognitive tests with some also having FDG-PET and PiB-PET. The aim was to gather longitudinal data over time and link early cognitive, imaging and biomarker changes to later clinical decline.

How come every clinical trial seems to use different terminology and disparate applications (resulting in a new learning curve and low user adoption)? Why can't we get ad-hoc reports in a format that is actually useful, covering a timeframe we actually care about?

A few weeks ago while attending the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) World Congress in Florence, I had some of the best lamb I have ever tasted at a recommended restaurant. So good, in fact, that the local chefs ate there as well at the end of their evening. It turned out the restauranteur owned a sheep farm.
