Blinded Reader Sourcing
RadMD is the global source for expert physicians to perform independent image reviews  - both safety and efficacy - from clinical trials (blinded reads).  Turn-key management of readers (contracts, training, logistics, performance monitoring, retraining, etc.) allows sponsors to focus on key competencies, increasing overall efficiency of the blinded read process, saving time and cost.

Over 600 experts include:

  • Radiologists
  • Oncologists
  • Cardiologists
  • Pathologists
  • Medical imaging physicists

24 hour read turnaround time is available for:

  • Subject enrollment/inclusion reads
  • Confirmation of disease progression reads

All RadMD readers are trained and tested through BRITI.

Demand for qualified radiologists and other physicians to participate as blinded readers has increased due to greater use of imaging in trials, leading to difficulties in identifying readers with expertise specific to a trial disease process or therapy.

RadMD has recognized this problem and has developed a worldwide database of board certified, highly qualified physicians in our  unique SMaRT™ database that includes pertinent professional information about each physicians including his/her education and qualifications; clinical and research experience; area(s) of expertise; prior participation in clinical trials and blinded reads; and other relevant information required by regulatory authorities and sponsors . SMaRT™ is a global resource, and includes physicians in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

It is the extent and depth of our database of expert radiologists which allows us to readily identify and match physicians whose qualifications are optimal for performing a particular blinded read.

  • Worldwide extensive database of qualified radiologists
  • Readers in US, Central and South America, Europe and Asia allows for maximal global flexibility in the reading
  • Provides key separation of  sponsors and ICRO’s from direct hiring of blinded readers, minimizing potential bias.
  • Ensure the availability of radiologists within project time frame
  • Rigid standards for reader selection
