Children are a protected segment of society and pediatric clinical trials are critical to the development of new treatments for childhood diseases. These two principles put a significant burden on clinical trial conduct, especially when trial procedures include complex medical imaging techniques. The goal of this webinar is to describe and discuss challenges and solutions in designing, collecting and analyzing imaging data in support of clinical trials in children and adolescents in a variety of medical indications. Imaging-based endpoints in support of efficacy and safety are discussed with case examples in musculoskeletal disease and skeletal maturation, oncology and hematology using imaging techniques such as radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and sonography. Operational challenges and corresponding solutions that minimize burden and harm on pediatric trial participants, while obtaining high quality imaging-based data, will be discussed.
