The Cardiovascular Core Lab at Morristown Medical Center is available to review the clinical trial protocol to ensure that appropriate echocardiographic imaging is obtained. In collaboration with the study sponsor, the Cardiovascular Core Lab develops study-specific echo protocols, typically incorporated into study-specific manuals. The Cardiovascular Core Lab also works with the sponsor to develop study-specific case report forms (CRFs). CRFs may be paper-based or electronic as required.
The day-to-day function of the Cardiovascular Core Lab is well-defined by a set of standard operating procedures (SOPs). These detailed documents outline virtually all aspects of our Cardiovascular Core Lab operations and help to provide a transparent, reliable set of guidelines for good clinical practice and regulatory compliance. For each study, the Cardiovascular Core Lab also generates study-specific SOPs to ensure appropriate data management and consistent image analysis and reporting.
The Cardiovascular Core Lab is also available to provide assistance in regulatory reporting and manuscript development.
