ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirtualScopics, Inc. (NASDAQ: VSCP), a leading provider of quantitative imaging, today announced that they have completed analysis of a greater than 10,000 scan Phase III breast cancer study one week ahead of the six week contract period of the study utilizing a recently launched 3rd generation analysis platform.

Details of this new system include:

  • Significant advances in radiology productivity enabling shorter timelines and reduced cost.
  • An automated case check feature that validates radiologist input according to the technical details of analysis criteria and detects errors in real-time reducing rework and enhancing first pass quality.
  • A one-touch, automated data management system ensuring complete data integrity from receipt to delivery reducing the need for data reconciliation and allowing for compressed timelines, a critical element for late phase studies.
  • Significant enhancements in our Phase III capacity and quality control processes, facilitating increased revenue growth, client satisfaction, and financial return.

Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics stated, "We are extremely pleased to have finished this very large time compressed study ahead of schedule. The analysis represented in this study is the last remaining piece of efficacy data required for the client's submission to the regulatory authorities. As such, it was very important for us to complete this with the highest possible quality at or ahead of schedule." He further stated, "This study, along with regularly contracted work completed during the same period, represented a greater than 300% increase in the quantity of data ever processed by the company in a five week timeframe. I am very proud of our team for completing this ahead of schedule including a results file with over 2 million records with no data errors identified by the client or their data management company." He concluded, "As we process and pursue additional large studies like this our personnel, software, and systems positions us very well from a client and financial perspective."
