Medical Metrics provides centralized, independent image review services for all phases of clinical trials and research studies. We offer specialized expertise and strategic guidance on imaging techniques, assessments, and endpoints specific to your product.
Through preclinical imaging and analysis, we will provide you with insights into your imaging outcomes before your first-in-human trial. Our team has experience with animal, cadaveric, benchtop testing, and other R&D studies!
We design imaging endpoints for your unique study and product needs. Our team will research the latest assessment methodologies and make recommendations based on the science and the goals of your trial.
One size does not fit all when it comes to imaging protocols. Our protocols are designed specifically for your treatment therapy, based on the latest scientific literature and regulatory guidance documents.
Even before a study begins, MMI works closely sites to ensure that they understand and are able to execute the imaging requirements for the study. Our Site Screening, Training, and Qualification programs provide our clients with the assurance that their sites are prepared and ready to collect high quality images!
We provide software and support to help sites efficiently transfer images from their imaging facility to MMI. We organize, store, and archive all images received so you can “data mine” your clearly labeled, high-quality imaging dataset at any time.
Every image that arrives at MMI is reviewed to ensure consistency in quality and compliance to imaging protocols. We understand better than anyone that high-quality imaging translates directly to high-quality, reliable imaging outcomes.
Our dedicated and responsive project management team will oversee every step of the image management and analysis process once images arrive at MMI. We keep you up-to-date on what’s happening with your study, and liaise directly with sites to resolve any open imaging issues.
The security and integrity of your imaging data are of utmost importance to us at MMI. That’s why we designed a proprietary data management platform customized for clinical trial workflow, and a robust quality assurance program to make sure your data are accurate and reliable.
Our scientific staff are experienced with summarizing imaging outcomes in a concise and easy-to-interpret manner. We develop publication strategies that will enable you to market your clinical and imaging outcomes to your target audience.
Purpose-built to support your product surveillance teams, MMI offers unparalleled imaging insights for your post-market imaging on a per case basis. Our fully customizable approach allows surveillance teams to get their questions answered by independent, expert physicians and obtain unbiased imaging observations into post-market product performance.
Our strong focus and commitment to science is unparalleled in the imaging core lab industry. More than two-thirds of our staff hold advanced degrees, and all are committed to advancing clinical research and treatment therapies.

Interpretation of imaging can be subjective, and the best way to reduce that subjectivity is through centralized reads. This means that all images from a multi-center study are evaluated by one or a small group of reviewers. The reviewers are thoroughly trained on how to consistently interpret subjective or “borderline” cases, and reading styles are monitored throughout the study to minimize temporal drift in reads. Centralized reads eliminate the variability across individual site physician interpretations and allow us to more easily distinguish treatment effects.
There are many advantages of using an imaging core lab over independent reviewers. For one, the core lab has rigorous training programs and standard operating procedures that are followed to ensure accuracy and reproducibility of data. In addition, the core lab provides additional oversight and scrutiny of all analysis outcomes. Our infrastructure and systems enable us handle large volumes of imaging without skipping a beat, and we will manage the independent reviewers on your behalf for a hassle-free experience! Last but not least, core labs provide many other services beyond the independent reads, such as protocol consulting, image quality monitoring, etc.
Yes! We can customize the reader paradigm to fit your needs. We have supported single reader, multi-reader adjudication, “hot spare” models, and more. Let us know what you need, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
The earlier the better! As with everything, the more time you have to plan, the better the execution and outcomes will be. Whether you are in the initial stages of planning for a trial or have already started your trial, we can help you make the most out of your imaging study. Contact us to learn more!
