Clinical Imaging Steering Committee

The Clinical Imaging Steering Committee (CISC) was established in December of 2010. At monthly meetings, the CISC serves as a forum for the extramural imaging and oncology communities to provide strategic input to the NCI regarding its significant investment in imaging activities in clinical trials. It provides valuable imaging expertise for other steering committees' evaluations of therapeutic concepts and discussions that include an imaging component. View the CISC member roster as of May 30, 2024.

Strategic Priorities

  • CISC Strategic Priorities were formulated with the goal that the majority of submitted concepts would align with these established priorities.

Clinical Trials Planning Meetings (CTPMs)

CTPMs are held periodically and focus on specific clinical trial related topics.

  • Improving Brain Tumor Characterization with Advanced Neuroimaging Methods 
    In April 2018, the NCI CISC held a CTPM to discuss the development of brain tumor imaging techniques and how to integrate them into clinical trials. Read the executive summary.
