Progress with the FDA is going ahead according to the schedule we planned. At end-2022, we began collecting the associated images and clinical data that are to be used in our pivotal study”, adds Fredrik Brag.

In 2022, the Company announced it had completed the development of its iBiopsy® Lung Cancer Screening CADe/CADx Software as Medical Device (SaMD) based on artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. Median’s iBiopsy® LCS CADe/CADx SaMD reached outstanding performances (press release of March 22, 2022) calculated across a cohort of 1,760 patients, with a sensitivity of 94.7% for a specificity of 93.3%.

iCRO: further double-digit growth in revenue and extension of imaging services portfolio for biopharmaceutical companies with Imaging Lab
In 2022, Median Technologies’ iCRO business, which provides services for image management in oncology trials to the biopharmaceutical industry worldwide, continued its double-digit growth.

The Imaging Lab offer was launched during the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) conference in Chicago, US.

 Imaging Contract Research Organization
 The order backlog is the sum of orders received but not yet fulfilled. An increase or decrease in the order backlog corresponds to the order intake of the reporting period, net of invoiced services, completed or cancelled contracts, and currency impact for projects in foreign currency (re-evaluated at the exchange rate on closing date). Orders are booked once the customer confirms, in writing, its retention of the Company’s services for a given project. The contract is usually signed a few months after written confirmation.
