INTRODUCTION

Types of trials conducted by ACRIN

ACRIN’s nationwide research studies (clinical trials) evaluate the use of imaging techniques (x-rays and various types of scans) for the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. ACRIN’s overall goal is to increase the length and quality of life of those living with cancer. For example, studies may involve participants who have breast, lung, colorectal, prostate, or cervical cancer, or those at high risk for any of these cancers.
