Tracer delivery, PET scanning and image analysis

This part of the work was devoted to all technical and logistic operations needed to support the clinical activities of the AMYPAD project.  It coordinated tracer production and delivery to the imaging sites, all the tasks to set-up the clinical imaging network, the development of image acquisition and analysis protocols, the deployment of a centralized solution for image management infrastructure for both studies. In addition, the team provided technical support for data sharing and dissemination policies for amyloid PET data. Finally, the team was responsible for the data harmonization of the historical and prospectively collected PET imaging data, to ensure data quality and joint analyses between all collaborating cohorts.

To deal with the tracer production and distribution, scan acquisition, QC, transfer, quantification and, ultimately, sharing of image data across the 3 main aims of the study.
