MINIMIZE MANUAL ERRORS AND BIAS, MAXIMIZE VISIBILITY

Improve data quality and run more efficient studies with integrated software and systems specifically built for clinical trials. Benefit from our advanced technology combined with deep scientific and regulatory expertise in key therapeutic areas to get seamless and secure collection, evaluation, management and reporting of high-quality, objective imaging endpoint data.

GREATER DATA CONSISTENCY
Clinical trials require quantitative, reproducible processes to deliver consistent data. Reduce errors by up to 20% via advanced automation that ensures adherence to scoring criteria and eliminates manual activities prone to mistakes.

CONTINUOUS DATA TRANSPARENCY
Experience 100% visibility into your data at any time, from upload to data transfer. Get within-visit enrollment evaluations and enable a comprehensive and compliant audit trail with our singular, purpose-built platform.

GREATER DATA OBJECTIVITY
Reduce reader bias and discordance through consistent measurement tools with automated scoring criteria and calculations. This proven, high-tech approach enables experts to focus their efforts on the areas of greatest impact.

PUT SMARTER, FASTER IMAGING TO WORK IN YOUR TRIAL

Manual, outdated imaging based on paper case report forms (CRFs) and one-size-fits-all workflows cause compliance and data quality issues throughout a clinical trial. Reduce cost, time, subjectivity and data variability with integrated technology, processes and expertise that’s adapted to your specific study protocol.

PURPOSE-BUILT TECHNOLOGY

Facilitate timely eligibility and enrollment decisions while ensuring scientific validity and yielding higher-quality data with our purpose-built imaging technology. Sites will be compliant – and more productive – via automated image upload, quality assurance, and removal of Protected Health Information (PHI) from your imaging data.


INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND COMPLIANCE

AUTOMATED PROCESSES

Ensure a strong connection between your image data inputs, observations, measurements and scientific outputs, scores and endpoints by automating data management processes. Even better, your trial will be compliant with global regulators through a comprehensive audit trail that provides complete transparency and visibility into your protocol-specific workflows.


DRIVE GREATER DATA CONSISTENCY, REPRODUCIBILITY

DIVERSE IMAGING EXPERIENCE

Get confidence in your trial results by working with our team of imaging and regulatory experts, who have diverse experience that spans protocol management and widely-used disease response criteria. We’ll partner with you to develop and review your protocols while managing your daily trial operations.

FEATURED VIDEO SERIES

In this series, ERT’s Tim Kulbago, Vice President, Imaging, presents how image analysis software helps you comply with the growing demand for clinical trial imaging and what you can do to meet future imaging needs.

MEETING THE GROWING NEED FOR CLINICAL TRIAL IMAGING

Pharmaceutical developers are increasingly asked by regulators to include imaging analysis when evaluating clinical trial data. In this video, Tim Kulbago addresses questions related to this trend:

  • What’s driving the growing need for imaging in clinical development?
  • What challenges do sponsors face when incorporating imaging into clinical trials?
  • What over-read challenges exist with traditional imaging processes?

OVERCOMING IMAGING CHALLENGES THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

How does technology change clinical trial imaging? Where does it fit into the traditional clinical trial imaging process? In this video, Tim Kulbago explores these topics and more with answers to:

  • What’s the role of technology in imaging?
  • Does imaging technology negate the need for over-reads?
  • Is there a quality difference with technology solutions versus human over-reads?

IMPROVING IMAGING QUALITY AND COMPLIANCE

In this video, Tim Kulbago explains how technology-based imaging improves quality and regulatory compliance, and how these improvements benefit sponsors, including:

  • Why should you consider a more high-tech approach to imaging?
  • What are three benefits you can derive from technology-based imaging?
  • Are there particular trials that would benefit from technology-based imaging?

PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE OF CLINICAL TRIAL IMAGING

With a push for more clinical trial imaging and the use of new technologies in imaging, what does the future hold? Tim Kulbago shares his perspective on:

  • What does the future of imaging look like?
  • How can you prepare now for future imaging needs?
  • Are computer technologies becoming the primary source of image interpretation?
