The activities of the former ESR Subcommittee on Imaging Biomarkers, ESR Working Group on Personalised Medicine and ESR-EORTC Working Group were merged into EIBALL.
Coordinate all ESR activities concerning imaging biomarkers
Prepare an inventory of all activities and projects in the field of imaging biomarkers where the ESR is involved
Serve as a tool box that provides information about current projects, centres involved in clinical trials and educational activities
Define possible imaging biomarkers in different human body regions; oncologic as well as non-oncologic
Establish a functional biomarker profile that is current and relevant through the development of an online inventory of biomarkers
Enable and encourage the clinical use of biomarkers by setting standards for data acquisition and image processing
Closely collaborate with EIBIR to maintain an updated list of European centres of excellence (core institutions) for the implementation and clinical validation of imaging biomarkers
Closely collaborate with the EORTC (European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer) and its Imaging Group with regard to the inclusion of radiologists in multicentre trials and the development of a biomarker inventory
Closely collaborate with QIBA (technical validation synergies) to avoid duplication of development and EORTC (biological validation) to coordinate strategies, find complementarity, and benefit from synergies
