Call for Participation in a Survey

An EU funded Horizon 2020 project which aims at developing and validating a new imaging technology called Spectral Photon Counting CT (SPCCT) and contrast-media has started this year. SPCCT will allow earlier diagnosis by means of a high spatial resolution combined to the newly developed contrast agent.

The project is led by Professor Philippe Douek from Lyon (France) and involves neurologists, cardiologists, radiologists, physicists and health economists in different European countries.

The team of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (The Netherlands) is working on the cost-effectiveness part of the project and intends to assess the current practice for the diagnosis and treatment pattern of acute stroke patients. To reach that goal, they have designed a web-based survey targeted at neurologists, stroke physicians, neurointerventionalists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons and emergency physicians.

Considering the relevance of this research initiative, we would like to invite you, clinical experts, to respond to this survey. Completion will require about 10 minutes. The anonymous answers will be used as input parameters in the cost–effectiveness models that will be developed. The survey results will be sent to the respondents who are willing to provide their contact information.

It can be accessed via the following link: To the survey.
