We recognize the demands placed on sponsors and pride ourselves on having the perfect combination of academic integrity and operational efficiency, unparalleled by any commercial lab. How do we do this? It is simple. We approach every new study as we would a new patient. We seek to understand the study, its background and goal. Then we offer our expertise in medical imaging to guide the study to effectively and efficiently reach its endpoints. During the implementation of the study and Core Lab interpretive study, we maintain the personal service, responsiveness and timeliness of analysis.

Cardiovascular imaging is rapidly expanding and we can help you understand what each modality can do for your clinical trial. We will ensure your investigators are adequately trained to optimize the yield of the imaging data and see that all regulatory requirements are in place. We also assist with data analysis and interpretation, presentations to the medical community, and education of the regulatory agencies about the study results. While you may choose some or all of these services, you will find that we care about your study and will monitor it carefully and proficiently.
