FAQ: I received a binder full of imaging-related materials from my study sponsor. Does this binder need to be given to someone in the Radiology Department, and if so, who?

If your study sponsor sent you an imaging binder, they may specify where it should be kept. More often than not they will request that it be kept in the "imaging area" or "imaging department." These binders usually contain imaging manuals, imaging protocol information and study forms that need to be completed by imaging personnel for each scan. The HIRO can make sure that your study binder gets stored in the proper imaging area and that it is available to all imaging personnel that require it.

These binders are valuable resources that HIRO and Radiology staff members use to ensure that your study's imaging is acquired accurately. They also often contain supplies that are used by the imaging technologist and/or HIRO staff for each scan.
