  1. Resource Description
    The Tumor Imaging Metrics Core (TIMC), co-Directed by Annick D. Van den Abbeele, MD (DFCI) and Gordon J. Harris, PhD (MGH), is a shared resource that was founded in 2004 to provide standardized, longitudinal tumor metrics for patients enrolled in oncologic clinical trials across the five Harvard teaching hospitals of the DF/HCC. The ordering, communication, workflow, results reporting, electronic signatures, audit trails, criteria conformance, and chargeback billing are all managed through a web-based informatics platform, Precision Imaging Metrics, developed by TIMC, which is currently in use at eight NCI-designated Cancer Centers around the country. Clinical trials imaging assessment results are provided in time for review at the point of care in as little as one hour after completion of scanning. TIMC currently manages over 1,200 active clinical trials and performs over 15,000 image assessments per year for Partners and DF/HCC investigators. The mission of the Tumor Imaging Metrics Core (TIMC) is to provide standardized, consistent, longitudinal radiological measurements to evaluate therapeutic response for DF/HCC clinical trials. The TIMC - * Makes reliable, quantitative, longitudinal measurements (such as RECIST, Lugano, irRC, RANO, standardized uptake value [SUV] etc.) of lesions from serial MRI, CT, PET, and PET/CT scan images * Presents results of analyses on a password-protected secure web-based report * Provides an independent service, with verifiable measurement of treatment response for patients enrolled in cancer center trials * Serves as a centralized, computerized resource to facilitate efficient internal or external auditing
