The Section of Imaging Sciences in the Imaging Institute provides free time on imaging equipment for the purposes of obtaining preliminary data. The program is designed specifically for investigators from Cleveland Clinic who need to collect pilot data for the purposes of applying for grant funding.
All investigators must fill out the pilot data application form to access the pilot data program. Applications will be reviewed by the Radiology Research Committee which meets monthly. Applications will be scored on the basis of scientific merit, plans for future funding, likelihood of future funding and likelihood of future publication. Allocation of time on imaging equipment will be made on the basis of equipment availability and the pilot data application score. All proposed studies must comply with the guidelines for imaging research at Cleveland Clinic.
