“PIA’s imaging core lab capabilities more than satisfied our research needs during a large project. PIA was highly accurate with consistent reproducibility. They are flexible and easy to work with. We would definitely use them again.”
Prof. Vincent Jaddoe, Principal Investigator
Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Netherlands
“For starting a new cardiac MR service, the PIA solution was advantageous for our institution since it allowed us to provide our referring clinicians quantitative functional analyses without the costs and personnel training that would have been required if we purchased an onsite analysis package”
Lee Mitsumori, MD.
