Scheduling Plan

Once a protocol has been approved by the APRC, a protocol name will be created for the PI. Then booking can be performed via the online booking system https://godzilla.kennedykrieger.org/scanPlan (Please following the Schedule Manual). Note that we use 2-hour increments, i.e. 2h,4h, 6h, 8h, etc time slots, to optimize usage by as many investigators as possible. For users want to schedule four hour scans, please schedule start from 10:00am or 14:00pm to leave enough time in the same day for other users. Billing occurs monthly. A billing contact person needs to be specified for our administrators to contact in case of issues. Payment will be by check for JHU users and automated billing for KKI users. Future grant applications in JHU should contain a subcontract to KKI, which will allow direct billing.
Charges will be for booked time. Cancellation prior to the booked time is required to avoid charges. Cancellation time depends on the booked scan time, i.e. 24 hours for 2 hour scan, 48 hours for 4 hour scan, and 72 hours for scan time larger than 4 hours. Upon cancellation within the required time the other users will be e-mailed and if a replacement user is found no charges will be applied. Refusal to pay charges may lead to loss of access privileges.
