In accordance with law and industry standards, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center maintains an institutional process for the disclosure, adjudication, and management of situations in which employees or Directors have a personal financial interest in decisions they make on behalf of Memorial Sloan Kettering or in research conducted at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
The Evidence-based Cancer Imaging Program has established an additional process to identify potential conflicts of interest of individuals or the spouse or minor child of individuals who have substantively participated in the development or modification of appropriate use criteria (AUC) that may financially benefit from the AUC. This information is documented and will be made available in a timely fashion to a public request. Information will be available for a period of not less than five years after the most recent published update of the relevant AUC.
In the event of a potential conflict of interest related to the AUC process, the participant disclosure form will be reviewed by the co-chairs of Clinical Council for Cancer Imaging (CCCI) and the MSK Conflict of Interest Office. The outcome may result in the recusal or exclusion of individuals in the AUC process as appropriate.
