Image Analysis Group (IAG) is an expert medical imaging company that has grown to become a global leader in clinical research, which involves medical imaging (MRI, CT, Xray) to measure efficacy and safety of new drugs. We provide the cloud-based image management platform (DYNAMIKA) and R&D services to support pharmaceutical companies developing new drugs to treat patients with cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and other diseases. Through medical image analysis, we measure the new therapy impact and patient response. This response can be assessed by looking at the volume of a tumour, shrinkage of hippocampus, degree of blood perfusion, spread of metastasis, muscle mass, etc. IAG’s proprietary software platform, Dynamika supports all imaging data logistics in a multi-centre trial setting, automates many labor intense routines (quality checks, DICOM header checks) and speeds up the imaging data analysis with AI-driven methodologies. We have released the 3rd generation platform (GCP and Microservices) and it has become the software of choice for many biotech and pharma companies around the world.
