Summary of event

Imaging studies performed across multiple centres provide an attractive method of obtaining large datasets with results that can be generalised across the population. However, despite the increasing number of multicentre studies in both clinical and normal populations, this approach is complicated by the many technical issues that have to be addressed before the MRI data from different sites can be combined - this latter issue often requiring input from MRI physicists. The aims of this meeting were two-fold: (1) to study the clinical / research results from on-going / completed multicentre studies (e.g. those conducted in subjects with autism, breast imaging or fMRI "standardisation" studies of healthy volunteers), thereby facilitating discussion of the advantages of multicentre imaging including the more general interpretation of the results. (2) to discuss some of the applied solutions to the technical difficulties important in multicentre imaging (e.g. standardised acquisition and analysis protocols, combination of data from multiple sites and MRI Quality Assurance) allowing further optimisation and / or adoption of these methods to new studies.
