Bioclinica's application of SMART in Neuroscience

Bioclinica advances clinical trials via SMART — a robust suite of centralized medical imaging services designed to manage the complex imaging process from image receipt to analysis, to regulatory submission.

Advanced medical imaging can provide important, quantitative information on global and regional structural changes in the brain, informing patient eligibility and drug efficacy. Molecular imaging and functional MRI provide increasingly vital information about brain function, enabling sophisticated evaluation of disease states. Our neuroscience team has experience with the latest advancements in biomarkers.

  • Structural MRI
  • Functional MRI (fMRI)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Molecular Imaging (PET/SPECT)
  • Angiography
  • ECG and ABPM
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Images are electronically uploaded from trial sites, blinded and rigorously quality checked. Bioclinica employs a “Multi-Step Quality Control” process that ensures the image data received from the sites will be of the highest quality. Our process enables thorough and precise image data management and analysis. We accept DICOM or manufacturer-specific formats.

We maximize your subjects' image data to help achieve the statistical power of your study. The end result is quality measurement data — delivered on time and within budget.

We track all patients enrolled in studies and all imaging data generated during the course of a clinical trial. Our expert technicians use innovative tools to deeply review, update, and assure compliance with clinical trial protocols and defined reading paradigms. This enables queries to be issued, tracked, and resolved. Our ICL collection management process is designed to detect early on any substandard image quality or violations of the imaging protocol.

Our imaging core lab collection management process includes:

  • Collect image data
  • Query sites for missing data
  • Translate/digitize image data
  • Image QA/QC
  • Image data query resolution
  • Archive for long-term storage
  • And more

Expert Independent Review

Advanced neuroimaging provides sensitive, quantitative and longitudinal information on global and regional structural changes in the brain, informing patient eligibility and drug efficacy of new treatments in clinical trials. Beyond structural data, Molecular imaging (PET) and functional MRI provide clinicians with increasingly sensitive information about brain function, enabling sophisticated evaluation of disease state modifications.

Our neuroscience team has experience with the latest advancements in molecular neuroimaging and biomarkers. Through collaborations with scientists at leading universities, government agencies, and research foundations, Bioclinica continually innovates and develops standardized neuroimaging methodologies for evaluating investigational therapies.
