This session will focus on designing and delivering trials in molecular radiotherapy including selecting relevant and deliverable primary endpoints. Hear about this topic from those involved in delivering MRT clinical trials and from a Public Health and Commissioning expert. Speakers will also examine the importance of building in health economic considerations to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of these therapies and optimising their use, for example by using more detailed dosimetry.
