Our academic partners collectively have access to tens of millions of imaging exams, full radiology reports, and data from the electronic medical records. All datasets can be full de-identified. All major imaging vendors are represented, and we can provide vendor agnostic or vendor specific datasets.
Yes. Our Academic Partners have access to the latest imaging technologies and techniques. The images from these start-of-the-art scanners are mined and stored in our secure repository.
Our miners work with our Academic Partners to search the radiology reports or electronic medical records to identify the perfect datasets. We frequently conduct preliminary searches as part of our validation process, prior to closing a contract with an Industry Partner.
Yes. Our Academic Partners are experts at mining complex patient outcome data from the electronic medical records. Patient demographics, pathology results, clinical notes, labs, follow up exam results, survival outcomes, and more can be fully de-identified and securely transferred.
The timing for electronic delivery of a dataset depends on the complexity of the request. Datasets in the archive (secure cloud storage) can often be delivered within 48 hours. Unique datasets that need to be mined from Academic Partners are commonly delivered within 30 days. A few large projects that require manual extraction of patient data can be delivered in parts, with most data delivered within 30 days and manual aspects delivered later. We include timing of delivery in our agreements and work to meet the needs of the Industry Partner.
We don’t sell or place a value on patient images, reports, or data. Our fair pricing covers research and service expenses only, including personnel effort and data curation, de-identification, storage and transfer. The costs of our services depend upon the volume of images needed and overall complexity of the research, including the need for patient outcomes data. Because of our fair pricing promise, we have the lowest prices in the industry.
Yes! Many industry partners find our annotation services to be faster, less expensive, and better than they could have done on their own. You can request exclusive rights to the fully annotated data for AI algorithm training. We can discuss this at any point and include image annotation in a separate contract if needed.
Yes! We provide full services for all steps of the FDA clearance process including data gathering, AI algorithm and software development, image annotation, multi-reader validation studies, biostatistics, FDA consultation and application preparation, and establishment of a quality management system (QMS).
