BCRI angiographic core lab

Angiographic Core Laboratory Services

Experience and Quality

BCRI's experts are the world's leaders in the angiographic analysis of pharmaceutical and device trials.  Dr. C. Michael Gibson invented the TIMI Frame Count and the TIMI Myocardial Perfusion Grade which are used to assess the efficacy of reperfusion strategies.  Dr. Jeffrey Popma has led the angiographic analysis of numerous device studies over 25 years. 

Appropriate Use Criteria Core Lab and Peer Review

BCRI experts are sought out by hospitals, payers, medical societies and law firms to perform peer review of angiograms to determine the appropriateness, complications and success of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI, or angioplasty).  BCRI also performs peer review of both medical record documentation as well angiograms to evaluate physician compliance with guidelines / evidence based Appropriate Use Criteria.  BCRI will provide a report quantitating deficiencies and indentifying areas for improvement at a site.


Rapid turnaround of high quality angiographic data is a priority.   For instance, we offer same day analysis of films from dose ranging studies where ongoing decisions are needed as to whether an arm of the trial should be dropped or continued.


Our core laboratory is equipped with the infrastructure, personnel, and experience to meet the goals and timeline for any type of angiographic study. Our core laboratory has 25 years of experience receiving mailings from international multicenter trials, some with hundreds of participating centers and many thousands patients.  We have analyzed films from all countries. We can also analyze films loaded from sites or a CRO onto the internet.


We  offer the analysis of coronary and peripheral arteriograms from a variety of studies:
