RESEARCH

The Foundation

RadNet partners with the Cancer Research Collaboration to secure clinical trials and introduce new treatment options for our patients. Currently comprised of focus areas in breast oncology and molecular imaging, the Foundation is tasked with identifying new agents and technologies for treatment of disease, from tumor profiling and vaccines to genetic testing—and with funding the operation of those programs.

In its partnership with RadNet, the Foundation provides patients access to major treatment trials, so that options are not restricted to only those who live in certain pockets of the country where trials are conducted at large academic centers. Born from the Breastlink Research Group, which started conducting clinical trials in 1995, the Foundation has collaborated with many different research entities to advance our understanding of disease—and potential cures.

For example, in our molecular imaging research, we conduct trials with both pharmaceutical and radiopharmaceutical companies. These trials evaluate new tracers and the effect of new drug treatments on imaging patterns.

Access to the Latest Findings

We hold a unique position in research—we’re community-based, but with access to some of the most cutting-edge drugs developed by the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies. The team has developed a robust research portfolio because our partners trust our 20 year track record of conducting clinical oncology trials. Our patients benefit from new agents introduced to fight disease, provided in a familiar setting and accompanied by comprehensive education from trusted professionals.

In our imaging research, we can operate without the affiliations or limitations that constrain other institutions. Through strict standardized protocols, centralized reading, and regulatory discipline, we can ensure quality and consistency across a broad geographic patient population.
