Heartlab's CardioNow Expands Installation Base to Include Leading European Cardiology Contract Research Organization; Cardialysis B.V. deploys Heartlab's CardioNow internet-based image management solution for cardiovascular clinical trials.


WESTERLY, R.I. --(Business Wire)-- May 4, 2005 -- Heartlab, the world's leading designer and supplier of digital image and information networks for cardiology, today announced the installation of Heartlab's CardioNow telecardiology and image management solution for cardiovascular drug and device studies at Cardialysis B.V., a leading cardiology contract research organization based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.



Heartlab's web-based CardioNow technology enables easy electronic sharing of patient angiograms and ultrasound studies required by cardiovascular device and drug clinical trials. Within minutes of patient enrollment, complete DICOM studies can be transferred from investigator sites to angiographic and ultrasound core labs anywhere in the world for analysis. Additionally, these studies can be made available online for simultaneous review by other stakeholders such as clinical event committee members, safety monitoring board members and trial sponsors.

Cardialysis B.V. will now be able to offer its clients CardioNow's streamlined web-based solution to handle receipt, tracking, archiving, and analysis of complex cardiac images from hospital investigator sites around the world. This installation represents the seventh cardiovascular core lab to endorse Heartlab's CardioNow web-based solution for clinical trial image management.


"Heartlab's CardioNow replaces the traditional mail-based and manual tracking and archiving method of managing patient films for clinical trails. The old method delayed database lock and added weeks or months onto the duration of a trial," commented Heartlab CEO Robert Petrocelli. "Heartlab's CardioNow eliminates these costly delays by enabling core labs and other stakeholders to receive and analyze these critically important images with minutes of initial patient enrollment. Prompt study analysis reduces product development times and expedites speed to market for new cardiovascular devices and drugs. We are excited that our innovative solution for clinical trial image management is now available at Cardialysis B.V., one of the world's leading cardiovascular contract research organizations."
