10,000+ De-Identified Cardiac MRI Exams with Associated Clinical Reports Available for Research via CloudCMR Platform.
Durham, NC – September 8th, 2015
Heart Imaging Technologies (HeartIT) is extremely excited to announce that their CloudCMR service now contains over 10,000 de-identified Cardiac MRI (CMR) procedures and their associated, finalized, clinical reports.
Since launching in March of 2015, organizations from all over the world who are interested in promoting the CMR modality have signed up for CloudCMR. CloudCMR enables members to securely transmit de-identified CMR images and reports from their location to the cloud. Once the information is stored on CloudCMR, members can designate who can access their de-identified clinical data, facilitating multi-center collaboration and research which is unprecedented in the imaging industry.
Brent Reed, Chief Technology Officer said “The adoption of CloudCMR by major hospitals and universities in the US since March has been amazing. To have launched less than 6 months ago and to already have 10,000 clinical procedures and their reports being shared amongst multiple organizations is a major advancement for CMR. Users could potentially search all 10,000 records then immediately view all images, the entire DICOM dataset of the scan, with a single mouse click.”
Dr. John Grizzard, Radiologist at the Virginia Commonwealth University said, “I’ve been able to perform data-mining activities on de-identified studies and reports submitted by colleagues in Texas, North Carolina and New York with a single query. CloudCMR is allowing us to do research on data which would normally take 5 or 10 years to accumulate at one site. Plus, because the data originates from sites around the country, it broadens the attributes and characteristics of the patient population, making the results of searches more significant.”
Dr. Robert Judd, President of Heart Imaging Technologies said, “CloudCMR changes the landscape in terms of multi-center research. In CloudCMR if a member grants you access to their data, not only can you search or mine your data, but you can search their data as well. You can find all of the patients who have an ejection fraction of less than 25%, have a prior infarct, and who also have a pacemaker. Our structured reports contain about 380 individual fields, so the possibilities of logical combinations are endless. Most importantly, with the Cloud-based CMR workstation tools, you can validate the reported ejection fraction and other measurements within your browser without requiring any additional software.”
