Radiant Sage Enhances Features and Functionality of Core-Lab-in-a-Box™

Software-as-a-Service Clinical Trial Image Management Solution Increases Efficiency and Effectiveness for Drug Discovery and Research Organizations

BELMONT, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2011) - Radiant Sage LLC, a provider of on-demand Clinical Trial Image Management Solutions, today announced significant enhancements to its flagship Core-Lab-in-a-Box™ product. Specifically designed for imaging clinical trials, this Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) image management solution enables rapid trial starts and increases overall efficiency of the collection, distribution and processing of images.

"We have made it our mission to carefully listen to our clients and thoroughly understand their imaging management challenges during and after clinical trials," said Chander Jain, VP of Development and Services. "We continue to strive to enhance our solutions to maintain a highly differentiated product, to ensure our clients can fully leverage their images and the resulting data to move their clinical trials forward. Our new workflow engine, the integration of eCRF and the web-based administration and configuration of trials are just a few of the new features aimed at increasing efficiency, reducing errors and cutting costs for drug discovery and research organizations."

Used by top global pharmaceutical companies, Core-Lab-in-a-Box is a unique, purpose-built clinical trial image management software package that provides trial sponsors with the key functionality of an imaging core lab without the associated expense and risk. It facilitates study execution, regulatory compliance and exploratory research. Furthermore, offered via a SaaS delivery model, Core-Lab-in-a-Box enables sponsors to have a trial up and running in just weeks.

Some of the new features and functionality of Core-Lab-in-a-Box include:

  • Workflow Engine that presents all participants with relevant data and the actions they need to perform at each stage of the image management process. Supporting trial-specific workflows to manage image data including blinded reads, adjudication, quantification, etc., the workflow engine is critical to improving the quality, lowering costs as a result of reduced manpower requirements and thus the overall efficiency and productivity of the trial.
  • Integrated eCRF (electronic case report forms) provides both quantitative and qualitative data capture into eCRFs during blinded reads and other operations instead of the current paper forms or manual data entry, reducing errors and streamlining the reading process.
  • Web-based Trial Administration and Configuration makes it highly efficient to start and manage trials, thus reducing costs and timelines without the need for code changes to system, which also reduces the validation effort.
  • Upfront QA/QC provides automated protocol matching down to the acquisition level during data imports, improving efficiency by 40 to 50 percent.
  • Meta Data Standardization Support through a data dictionary that is global or local to a trial, ensures data consistency, rapid access to data and improvement in the overall quality and variability of the meta data.
  • Single Sign-on allows customers to integrate the Core-Lab-in-a-Box to an enterprise system enabling common authentication.
  • Direct Access to Images utilizing DICOM protocols, the Core-Lab-in-a-Box serves as a DICOM node for bi-directional communication and image movement, allowing any DICOM-aware entity to communicate with the data repository with trial specific configurable security models.
  • Multilingual Support eases communications for international trials.
  • Additional Export Features provide the users with far more flexibility on exporting data by supporting export configurations, such as the ability to modify headers, run rules, export non-DICOM files, and restrict data types to be exported.
