The Core commits its best efforts to successfully complete scheduled studies. However, given the very nature of many PET studies that rely on manufacturing of the radiopharmaceutical and in vivo imaging, the Core cannot cover costs associated with uncompleted studies due to equipment failure or circumstances outside of our control.
A fee, up to the cost of the cancelled service, can be charged in relation with a study in the event of a last minute cancellation or a no-show.
* A Partners investigator using a Partners fund is considered an internal user and will be subject to the institutional overhead rate applied by Partners Research Management. The external user fee comprises a direct fee negotiated with the PET Core plus an overhead component. The overhead rate set by Partners is 44% for external academic users and 59% for external industry users.
