What are screening tests or investigations?
These are the tests that need to be conducted to assess how suitable you are to enter the study. This means we will need to perform blood tests to assess your organ function, scans (usually a CT scan but can be an MRI/PET or ultrasound scan), ECGs and any additional tests that are required for a particular study. For example, some studies require patients to have a heart scan (such as an echocardiogram), eye test or skin or tumour biopsy.
Once we have the results of these tests, we will contact you to confirm you are eligible to enter the trial and arrange for you to start treatment.
