Through collaborations with industry experts and key opinion leaders, MMI has developed validated, custom methodologies to precisely quantify the mucosal thickening or inflammatory disease associated with Chronic Rhinosinusitis (CRS).
We are a preferred imaging core lab for CRS trials and have the ability to objectively characterize sinus opacification to detect minute changes that can be missed using traditional qualitative grading systems.
“We are blessed to have a partnership with such a great leader in CT assessment within the ENT community. The novelty and the quality of work done by Medical Metrics is unprecedented, which is instrumental for us to generate a high impact publication and awareness from ENT physicians.” - Clinical Research Manager from Top 5 Medical Device Companies
MMI is a leading core lab for ENT trials and developed an objective measure for characterizing sinus opacification as an imaging endpoint.
WHAT WE OFFER
Mucosal modelling to evaluate disease burden and progression over time
Dr. Pallanch is widely acknowledged as one of the very first to conceptualize and study the objective quantification of disease burden in patients with CRS using 3D volumetric staging. Dr. Pallanch has over 30 years of experience in clinical and surgical practice, research, and teaching. He is a pioneer in 3D image analysis for the study of the paranasal sinuses and nasal obstruction, for multiple applications including pre-op planning and extent of disease. He is a past board member of the American Rhinologic Society and ISIAN, served on the Editorial Board of the International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology, and currently serves as a reviewer for multiple journals. In addition to lecturing in 25+ countries, he has authored a dissection manual for rhinologic surgery, a DVD teaching 3D image analysis for surgical planning, and 2 theses on rhinologic physiology. He continues research on 3D image analysis.
Dr. Citardi serves as Professor and Chair of the Department Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. He also holds the position of Service Line Chief for the Memorial Hermann – Otorhinolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Dr. Citardi is an internationally recognized Rhinologist, has over 100 publications and has authored book chapters. He was also a former director of the American Rhinologic Society. He has been a Houstonia Top Doctor since 2014, Castle Connolly Top Doctor since 2013 and a Texas Super Doctor since 2012.
