Clinical Trial Quality Control Software Released for QIBA Imaging Protocol Compliance

April 28, 2014 — Clinical trial sponsors working to standardize the capture and submission of complex imaging data through new QIBA (Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance) imaging charters now have an easy and effective way to ensure the protocols are being met. AG Mednet’s Submission, Quality and Compliance (SQC) software for QIBA is the first technology to automate the process of verifying QIBA protocol compliance, saving sponsors time and money and making it easier for investigator sites to submit quality data. QIBA is an initiative sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) to advance quantitative imaging and the use of imaging biomarkers in clinical trials by reducing variability.

While electronic transfer has made the transporting of large imaging files faster, it did little to address the quality of the images being sent. AG Mednet’s SQC technology and the efforts of RSNA, together with sponsor-driven QIBA protocols, put the emphasis on improving quality at the source, before preventable human errors can cause queries and costly delays. Sponsors can utilize SQC for QIBA to significantly cut quality control costs at the core lab.

“Even though QIBA protocols should always be followed, sponsors still need to verify compliance,” said Abraham Gutman, CEO of AG Mednet. “Today, the verification and quality assurance of all data submission occurs manually and after the images have been submitted, adding another expense and opportunity for error to the ever increasing costs and delays of clinical trials. AG Mednet’s SQC software for QIBA protocols removes the manual process and scans imaging data for QIBA compliance in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost.”
