Perceptive Informatics Introduces Medical Imaging Methodology to Accelerate Development Decisions About Alzheimer's Treatments
Date:4/30/2009

a novel method of ventricular measurement that accurately reflects brain atrophy," said James Paskavitz, M.D., Medical Director, Perceptive Informatics. "We believe that this method can support sponsors in reducing the time, cost, and risk associated with clinical development of Alzheimer's treatments by providing medical image data that informs early phase decisions and is reproducible for later phase, multi-center trials."

The Perceptive Informatics Medical Imaging Group has helped to develop and validate novel surrogate endpoints for a variety of CNS disorders. Perceptive offers a range of capabilities in the application of imaging techniques from early clinical development through late phase studies. The medical imaging team operates globally and services a wide range of therapeutic areas, including oncology, central nervous system, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and metabolism/endocrinology imaging.
