The current RFA provides an opportunity for Canada's medical imaging community to come together to establish a clinical trials network that will coordinate and support imaging trials. As the funds for this initiative are a part of a larger Federal funding envelope for the Isotope Supply Initiative, the focus of the network, as least initially, must be on imaging modalities that use radiopharmaceuticals, including combined imaging modalities such as MRI/PET and must address the intent of the Federal Initiative, which is to reduce our reliance on 99mTc.
