The UC Imaging Management Center, led by Dr. Achala Vagal, provides a full range of imaging biomarkers, as well as protocol design and centralized, independent reading. Our highly experienced team is composed of neuroradiologists, MRI physicists,
dedicated post processing technologists, and program and project staff with extensive understanding of the optimal functioning of imaging management and its critical role in a study or trial involving imaging.
The UC Imaging Management Center has a long-standing reputation of delivering extensive collaborative leadership and expert imaging interpretation customized toward any unique image acquisition feature of trial design as well as endpoint
imaging measurements. We have been involved for over 20 years as imaging core lab in support of multiple, multicenter, NIH and industry-funded clinical stroke trials and population-based studies (IMS 3, CLEAR, CLEAR-ER, PRISMS, APRISE, ERICH/GERFHS,
ROSE-ICH, MOST, FASTEST, ROSE-LAWN, ERICH-Gene, APRISE-Dementia). The imaging core lab has experienced individuals who can perform necessary activities for efficient imaging management. The imaging center maintains compliance
with all regulatory requirements and conduct all studies with data integrity.
A web-based medical imaging infrastructure software platform (Ambra Health) with HIPAA and 21CFR Part 11 compliant technology and robust infrastructure is available to allow secure medical image upload, storage and transfer. This platform
is designed to ensure seamless electronic integration of the large amount of imaging data along with de-identification, image routing and advanced QA edit check capabilities resulting in a significantly lower query rate and increased data
accuracy. Imaging data can be stored long term with multilayered safety features for data security including inspection firewalling, protocol and application inspection, in-line intrusion protection, multimedia and voice security, security
breech monitoring and notifications and environmental controls. The imaging center also has full access to the University of Cincinnati’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC) initiative which offers a readily accessible hybrid
CPU/GPU computing cluster, supporting the next generation of computational and data science researchers.
Advanced Imaging Analysis
Advanced imaging analysis involves the expertise in methods from multiple disciplines such as neuroscience, computer science, data science, informatics and statistics. Some of the methods we have implemented in the past are listed below. Please
