MMI EPICTM customizability allows for efficient analysis of varied assessments across a visually-guided joint mapping user interface.
Our 15+ years of experience in orthopedic imaging trials informs a nuanced understanding of soft tissue and joint space changes and disease states.
MMI's partnerships with leaders in the rheumatology and orthopedics fields ensures excellence in consulting and analysis needs.
MMI supports the trial imaging needs for a range of inflammatory disease conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ankylosing spondylitis.
MMI’s experience in the joint space ranges across the entire human body, including but not limited to those of the hip, knee, ankle, wrist, elbow, and peripheral joints. We support clinical studies for treatments ranging from drugs, immunomodulating biologics, genetic and cellular therapies, as well as emerging technologies.
We support the joint analysis necessary to provide a thorough understanding of the conditional changes encountered in arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ankylosing spondylitis, as well as numerous other immune-related states throughout the body systems, such as tendinitis, synovitis and bursitis, and rhinosinusitis.
Determination of disease progression is accomplished through robust tracking of semi-quantitative scoring (such as erosion and joint space narrowing), as well as qualitative changes over time. MMI’s flexible software configuration is fully customizable for a variety of scoring methods and set up with reader accessibility in mind: joint mapping, directed workflow, and straight-forward adjudication.
