North Bristol NHS Trust and NCIMI

North Bristol NHS Trust has partnered with NCIMI (National Consortium of Intelligent Medical Imaging) work in mesothelioma developing artificial intelligence (AI) to assist clinic trial teams in monitoring treatment response through CT imaging.

ASSESS-meso, led by Professor Anna Bibby at Bristol with support of Professor Nick Maskell (University of Bristol Medical School), is a prospective, multicentre, observational cohort study that collects data and biological samples from mesothelioma patients, from the point of diagnosis until death. NCIMI, PREDICT-Meso and the ASSESS-Meso team from Biristol are collaborating to expand recruitment and evaluate the role of serial mesothelin as a response marker and prognostic indicator.
