Objective, reproducible, and trustworthy data in clinical trials with imaging endpoints

Dr. Anthony Tolcher, medical oncologist and CEO of NEXT Oncology, spoke to us about objectivity as one of the biggest challenges in clinical trials and how a software solution for tumor assessment can improve the quality and reproducibility of data, all while saving time.

Moreover, such software solutions are a key aspect for the approval of novel drugs based on small sample size – like for example targeted or tissue agnostic medicine, as a significant advance for precision therapies. Dr. Tolcher describes how mint Lesion™ assists in generating trustworthy data, “so that [one] can ensure that the drugs that are getting approved really do work.”
