September 1, 2009 - BioClinica Inc., a clinical trial services provider, today announced that it has acquired the CardioNow unit of Agfa HealthCare to offer streamlined electronic transport solutions to facilitate the blinding, sharing, tracking and archiving of medical images for multi-center clinical trials as part of its suite of imaging services.

The company says imaging information will also be integrated with BioClinica Express electronic data capture to further simplify and enhance the clinical trial process for life science companies.

Since 1999, CardioNow has provided core labs, investigator sites, and medical device and pharmaceutical companies with an established and proven web-based system for the secure, regulatory compliant transmission and analysis of medical images that are integral components of clinical trials. The solution is also extensively utilized by remote independent reviewers for online case review and quantitative analysis, clinical event adjudication, and data safety monitoring. Over the past 10 years, CardioNow has successfully managed more than 8.8 million DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) images for clinical studies worldwide.

With the integration of CardioNow, BioClinica will be able to manage every step of the process that begins once a medical image is acquired at a clinical site through the delivery of evaluated results to the sponsor. This end-to-end control will ensure that the process is as efficient and expedient as possible.
