(PRWEB) March 10, 2009 -- M2S Inc., a global provider of image management services for biopharmaceutical and medical device clinical trials, announced today that the company has expanded its electronic image collection and transfer offering with access to AG Mednet, the global HIPAA and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant image exchange network. This enables M2S to offer clinical trial sponsors the ability to choose the optimal image collection and transfer method based on the needs of their particular trial.

Clinical trials are increasingly using medical imaging for inclusion criteria, secondary and surrogate endpoints and to serve as adjunctive safety assessment of drugs under development. Clinical trial imaging provides a non-invasive method of obtaining information on a drug's effects in the body and can provide crucial information for making early "go/no-go" decisions, potentially saving millions of dollars in development costs. Collecting and managing large amounts of imaging data securely and rapidly can be challenging and often costly for trial sponsors, and the traditional method of image transfer via hard media and courier services is very time-intensive and error prone. Electronic data transfer of images drastically reduces the time involved, provides the opportunity for early discovery and resolution of queries, and therefore can provide significant cost savings in clinical trials.

"We felt that an agreement with AG Mednet will enable us to optimize the image collection methods for each clinical trial. The AG Mednet solution is a perfect complement to our DICOM ArmorCar® and sFTP image collection tools. In an era of immense cost pressures, we are proud to be the only imaging core lab able to offer rapid and high-quality imaging data through customization of electronic image transfer, while also providing measurable time and cost savings," Wes Chapman, CEO of M2S stated.

Abraham Gutman, President & CEO of AG Mednet added: "We are delighted to be working with M2S. The AG Mednet network platform with its simple to use web-enabled front-end functionality will reduce significantly the number of site queries, while providing M2S with a highly scalable solution to fit the needs of the most demanding global trials."

M2S has been utilizing web-based methods for rapid and secure electronic image collection and transfer since 2002, with their proprietary network transfer device, the DICOM Armor Car (DAC®), which has an installed base of 287 sites worldwide. The AG Mednet network, in use at over 600 investigator sites globally, provides a web-enabled "front-end," allowing sites to de-identify exams, fill electronic transmittal forms and submit the data directly to M2S trial repositories. Whether a trial is a Phase I using imaging for inclusion criteria, or a Phase III multi-center international study with multiple imaging modalities for surrogate endpoints, M2S has the technology and process combination to provide the best customized solution.
