Parexel’s eClinical subsidiary Perceptive Informatics has entered into an alliance with AG Mednet to improve the efficiency and quality of the electronic image transfer process.

Under the terms of the alliance AG Mednet’s web-enabled network will be used to transfer medical images from clinical trial sites to Perceptive, eliminating the need to ship files and reducing costs for clients.

Kenneth Faulkner, vice president of medical imaging at Perceptive Informatics, said: "As sponsors increasingly rely on medical imaging to assess new compounds, accelerate development, and decrease the cost of getting treatments to market, we are focused on enhancing the speed of medical image delivery and the quality of associated data​.”

Perceptive believes that the alliance will result in higher quality images, which should reduce the number of queries and the need for data reconciliation with trial sites. This will allow images to be reviewed quicker and improve the service Perceptive offers.

AG Mednet is capable of transferring these high quality images electronically as it has installed fibre-optic cables that are capable of handling large, uncompressed files.

The deal follows on from similar deals Mednet has struck with Bio-Imaging Technologies and Phase Forward in what has been a busy six months for the global diagnostic imaging network.

Initial response to this latest alliance appears to be favourable, with Patti Rossi, vice president of clinical operations at Marshall Edwards, saying: “We are pleased with the accelerated timeline possible for this study brought by the value of this alliance, as well as many other benefits such as initial cost reductions for courier services related to image delivery​.”
