Oncology Medical Imaging

As the oncology clinical research landscape becomes increasingly complex, quality medical imaging is even more critical to each compound’s success. As a trial sponsor, you need an imaging partner who can keep pace with the latest advances while ensuring accurate and efficient results.

Without an experienced oncology clinical trial imaging partner, your program faces a variety of risks:

Inconsistent Data Quality

Inaccurate or missing data can lead to missed insights and poor decision making

Regulatory Roadblocks

Incomplete knowledge of the regulatory landscape can slow or halt your compound’s path to approval

Complicated data collection/review

The need for multiple data entry and report platforms can slow your data review, leading to missed milestones

Hidden costs

A lack of foresight can lead to audits, backtracking, and added expenses for your trial

Recent advances in personalized medicine and immunotherapies have given rise to an increase in the conduct of immuno-oncologic drug development. Bioclinica offers in-depth understanding of established assessment criteria as well as extensive expertise in the application of several novel approaches, including iRECIST and irRECIST.


The association of various oncology drugs with cardiotoxic side effects necessitates that sponsors evaluate cardiac safety endpoints, often via cardiac imaging (Echo and cardiac MR), electrophysiology (ECG) and hemodynamic (BP) measures, to define the potential cardiac safety signal and benefit-risk considerations in each therapeutic agent’s development plan.

Bioclinica has extensive expertise in planning and supporting successful cardiac safety studies, facilitating risk assessment for oncology drugs early in clinical development.
