In clinical trials, with the increasing use of imaging equipment such as CT, MRI, PET and the massive imaging data, the participation of imaging specialists has become a necessity. As the quality assessment about acquisition, transfer and analysis of imaging data is strengthened, it is essential that the organization be coordinated and managed in the center.

As the US FDA issued guidelines for the use of imaging in clinical trials, it is essential to use images in accordance with international standards. It is the first Central Imaging Core Lab in Korea that was established in Asan Medical Center to support all aspects of imaging use in clinical trials.
