Median Technologies, The Imaging Phenomics Company® (ALMDT:PA) is pleased to announce that James Golando, Chief of Operations at Median Technologies will present on “Optimizing Imaging in Oncology Clinical Trials” during the upcoming Medidata NEXT Global 2017, in New York at Spring Studios from November 8-10. Median’s session will take place on November 9 at 2:20-3:00 pm EDT in the Sunken Living Room.
Imaging plays a key role in the objective assessment of tumor response to drug therapies in oncology clinical trials, but it must be performed quantitatively, using appropriate response criteria to generate data that are comparable among trials. In addition, the complex and variable nature of imaging assessments can produce unreliable results if standardization practices are not implemented and carefully followed.
“Our presentation will aim at highlighting the importance of quantitative imaging in oncology clinical trials and will present how to assess patient response to therapy using international imaging criteria. Our presentation will also provide directions to combat and manage variability, one of the main issues which can jeopardize clinical trial results,” said Jim Golando, Chief of Operations at Median Technologies. “Providing innovative solutions for the interpretation and management of images in clinical trials, thus extracting high-quality biomarkers for better study and patient outcomes, is one of the main objectives of the partnership we signed in June with Medidata. We are pleased to present how Median’s proprietary technology can better support the assessment of patient response in clinical trials and further how this is amplified by leveraging Medidata Medical Imaging®,” he added.
“We’re excited to have Median take the stage at Medidata NEXT, an event that is bringing together the leaders in clinical trials,” said Simon Mouyal, Chief Marketing Officer at Medidata. “Their session on how new technologies can optimize image management will cover the most up to date trends and solutions. We’re looking forward to them sharing their insights to educate others on how, together, we are driving innovation in clinical trial.”
