Reduce queries and costs
Approximately 20% of queries will need to be reopened if you submit DICOM images to a clinical trial without a pre-submission image screening system. In some hospitals, the query rate jumps to 80%! These queries cost time and money — and take dollars from valuable research funds. Reduce your costs with pre-submission image screening AI technology, including custom, trial-specific acceptance criteria.
Protect patient privacy
Improper de-identification of DICOM images can result in visible patient health information (PHI), which risks patient privacy. Our SMART Submit clinical research image processing software uses over 150 rules to detect and rectify common issues in DICOM files, including the presence of PHI.
Reduce the risk of image quality issues
SMART Submit’s proprietary automated de-identification system involves three levels of verification and is 48-fold more proficient at removing PHI than other DICOM transport solutions. The research site loads the original DICOM into the software application, enters the case trial identifiers, and SMART Submit handles the rest.
Our clinical research imaging experts perform quality control (QC) for anomalous cases or studies generated by new imaging equipment. As part of our image QC check, our team can save you time by querying the site directly to resolve any image issues or screen files for your specified acceptance criteria.
