Orthopedic imaging network aids subject recruitment

Medical facilities in Halifax, Winnipeg and Montreal are boosting their imaging firepower at the same time they're improving subject recruitment for clinical trials. They've created a network of high-quality measurement tools for the use of surgeons implanting joint replacements.

The network, developed by Halifax Biomedical, combines the contract research service provider's radio-stereometric analysis database with Canon imaging technology. Each of the research facilities in the network will use Halifax stereo radiography software and the Canon gear to collect data and generate 3D images for use by surgeons.

The network aids clinical trials by providing for joint recruit efforts that reach more patients and collect greater amounts of data than any of the facilities could alone. It allows for true multi-site trials.
