New Study Open for Recruitment: Repeatability and Reproducibility of Quantitative MRCP
Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI] of the Biliary Tree (the network of Bile Ducts within the liver)
Perspectum Diagnostics has opened a new study into its biliary tree diagnostic software, MRCP+. Please see the Q&A below for more information on this opportunity.
Can I be involved?
If you are over 18 years of age, and have some form of condition which affects your biliary tree (i.e PSC, PBC), and are willing to come to Oxford for a study session, you may be eligible for this study.
What does the study involve?
You would need to undergo 6 10 minute MRI scans of your biliary tree called MRCP scans. These will be analysed by “MRCP+”. The aim of the study is to see how well the current version of “MRCP+” is working at analysing images of the biliary tree.
What is MRCP+?
MRCP+ is a piece of software which analyses normal MRI images of the biliary tree, and enhances them in a way that makes features of the biliary tree such as dilations and strictures measurable.
Is there any benefit to me for taking part?
As a thank-you for giving up your time, you would be paid £1MRCP Repeatability Study – Patient Information Leaflet00 for taking part in the study. You would also have your travel expenses covered in full, including a night over in a hotel for you and a partner if needed, and a light meal after your scans. You would also be helping in an important piece of research into a new diagnostic tool for assessing the health of the biliary tree.
How do I get more information?
