The heart and soul of this webinar is to provide attendees with a serious and substantive view of what’s possible with imaging analytics.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
ImageIQ, a Cleveland Clinic-founded contract research organization providing imaging analysis software and services, will host a webinar showcasing rarely seen clinical images including 2D and 3D views overlaid with quantitative data for clinical research areas such as cellular activity, cartilage quantification, biomaterial measurement, wound healing and even comparative volumes of fat in hamburgers. The event will include 60 images along with commentary about faster, more accurate ways to use image analysis to improve product design, manufacturing, efficacy, and post-market surveillance. Attendees will learn how imaging analytics can streamline time-intensive processes, improve quantity and quality of data, and reduce manufacturing and research costs.
“60 in 60: Speed Dating for Imaging Analytics” will be offered on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 1 pm EST and repeated on Thursday, November 10, 2011at 2 pm EST and also on Tuesday, November 15 at 3 pm EST. The free event will draw hundreds of attendees interested in image processing including biomedical R&D, quality and regulatory professionals in medical device, pharmaceutical and academic research organizations. Attendees will come away with detail about image measurement approaches that generate better and more comprehensive data for less cost. Attendees will learn more about optimizing preclinical image-based test data, reducing the length and cost of pre-market approvals, and leveraging data to enhance physician adoption. Registration is available at http://www.image-iq.com/speedwebinar.
“While our ‘speed dating’ theme and our showcasing of non-clinical images is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, the heart and soul of this webinar is to provide attendees with a serious and substantive view of what’s possible with imaging analytics,” says Image IQ CEO Tim Kulbago. “People will see images along with corresponding analysis presented in ways they never thought possible. With today’s most advanced software engineering, we can capture large volumes of images, analyze these images, and aggregate and present data in very cool and unimaginable ways.”
ImageIQ used a range of scanners (full scale and small animal MRI, CT, PET, etc.), bio-luminescence systems, and various microscopes (atomic force, bright field, confocal, etc.) to secure images for the webinar. They applied customized software engineering to analyze the information and present associated quantitative and qualitative data in a meaningful way.
“Organizations are spending lots of money on clinical image measurement especially when developing and seeking approval for new products. After using manually intensive processes and even off-the-shelf software, many realize they’ve yielded data that is inaccurate or is not as comprehensive as needed,” says Kulbago. “The newest technology, when coupled with deep expertise in imaging and biomedical engineering, can enable medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and academic researchers to save significant time in product development, clinical trials, competitive product comparisons and the like. We encourage people to spend sixty minutes seeing sixty fascinating images.”
ImageIQ is an Imaging Contract Research Organization (ICRO) that combines software engineering with biomedical and imaging expertise to provide quantitative visual analysis that enhances R&D and product efficacy/safety testing for research, medical device and pharmaceutical organizations.
