ImageIQ, an innovative Imaging Software and Contract Research Organization focused on supporting preclinical research and clinical trials, announced today that it has been chosen by CryoLife to provide its full complement of clinical trial management and imaging support services and technology for a new prospective multi-center pivotal clinical trial seeking to generate safety and efficacy data for medical device IDE approval. ImageIQ’s technology and services will be utilized in support of CryoLife’s IDE study of their PerClot® Polysaccharide Hemostatic System in patients in need of adjunctive intraoperative hemostasis during open elective cardiac, general or urological surgery when control of capillary, venular, and arteriolar bleeding by pressure, ligature, and other conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical.
