RadMD Expands Its Imaging Expertise Services with New European Office
RadMD, LLC announces the opening of its European office to expand services to EU pharma, biotech, and medical device companies.
The new location will provide:
A base for EU operations of consulting, training, and expert resourcing services centered on the use of imaging in clinical trials.
An accessible location for RadMD's expanding EU pool of expert independent radiologists and clinician reviewers
The EU office is located in Lucca, Italy, approximately 20 minutes from Pisa airport. This is the third office for RadMD, with locations in Doylestown, PA and New York City.
Reader availability can be a rate-limiting step to complete independent image reviews in clinical trials. By adding an expanded EU reader pool, RadMD can complete blinded reads faster, reducing read time and cost while maintaining quality through our proprietary tool, Reader Performance Management (RPM). Global regulatory authorities emphasize the need for transparent and standardized training in clinical trials. As with RadMD's existing reader pool, the new EU readers will also be certified through the company's training program, BRITI (The Blinded Reader & Investigator Training Institute). In addition, by providing blinded reading locations in both the US and EU, RadMD can leverage readers to perform rapid reviews for trials requiring fast turn around time.
"Recognizing the importance of the expanding EU drug and device markets, we are very enthusiastic about the new location and value this will bring to new and existing clients. Our unique clinical, regulatory, and development expertise provides clients with both local EU experience as well as a global perspective on imaging in clinical trials", says Kohkan Shamsi, MD, PhD, co-founder and Principal.
