Radiant Sage LLC, a provider of on-demand clinical trial imaging infrastructure solutions and services, today announced that it has expanded its operations into Europe through its partnership with Clearpoint Image Review Center (CIRC). Based in Oslo, Norway, CIRC is an imaging CRO (Contract Research Organization) that provides sponsors with extensive medical, operational and image management expertise in support of clinical trials.
CIRC will provide the facility and staffing resources for program management-based support for clinical studies in both the EU and U.S. They will also offer a wide range of services, including: audit support, document development and reader logistics to clinical study sponsor communications, site support and metrics reporting. In addition, CIRC will be able to leverage Radiant Sage's technology, staff and resources to support clients' clinical research studies.
Jeffrey Bowden, Radiant Sage's COO explained that "This teaming partnership represents an evolution in the industry, which is being driven by both advances in technology and the needs of clinical trial sponsors. Products like our Corelab-In-A-Box are virtually eliminating the need to have large laboratories of expensive imaging technology centrally maintained to process images and organize data for blinded reads. Now, trial sponsors can make much better use of regionally defined experts in a similar approach to that used in the CRO industry where medical monitors, program managers and clinical research associates are now de-centralized and regionally located providing a higher level of service to sponsors and clinical sites. The same can be done within the corelab industry, which is why this partnership with CIRC is an evolutionary step and will provide clinical trial sponsors with superior services, expertise and experience."
"Our clients are located throughout the world and having a partner in Europe will help us to better serve clinical trial sponsors with exceptionally experienced and regionally located staffing," said Venkatesan Thangaraj, Radiant Sage's CEO. "This partnership is a win-win for both companies, as well as our clients. We have complementary services and enable each other to expand our geographic footprints."
