NCI recently released an updated version of the Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour Dietary Recall (ASA24) system, a web-based software tool to help participants in dietary studies more accurately record their food intake.

ASA24 consists of a respondent website used by participants to enter what they consumed and a researcher website used by investigators to manage study logistics and obtain data analyses. Detailed information about ASA24, including information on registering a study and a demo of the updated respondent website, is available online.

ASA24 was developed by NCI and Westat for researchers who do epidemiologic, intervention, behavioral, or clinical research. Clinicians may also find it useful for diet assessment and nutrition counseling, and educators may find it to be a useful teaching tool.
