    "Review the CACTIS Center policies and procedures regarding human clinical studies. Authorization for performing studies in categories 2, 3 and 4 must be obtained from the CACTIS center. A monitoring plan must be submitted for all NIH/NCA studies. For all category 4 uses (clinical trials) an external monitor must be part of the monitoring plan (this may include monitoring by the Cancer Center, etc.). All CACTIS approved protocols must re-submit yearly. The CACTIS expiration date is the same as the IRB expiration date. Example: IRB expiration: 12/1/16 (your study also expires for CACTIS on this date) For all categories 2, 3 and 4, a CT technologist must be used to ensure that all of the screening and safety procedures involved in conventional clinical CT scanning are followed. Each request should designate a board certified radiologist within the HUP Radiology department as the "contact person" for the study. A licensed physician with training in recognition and treatment of contrast reactions should be in the CT facility when the study is being performed. This need not be a member of the study team. All research groups using the center for studies on humans will have at least one member of the group trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and present during scanner sessions. The scanning technologist is considered part of the group. The CPR certification should be renewed annually. This policy is to allow skilled delivery of emergency care while the hospital code team is en route. Courses are given regularly here at the hospital and elsewhere."
