Who we are

The UKM Reading Center provides standardized and systematic analysis of digital imaging for scientific ophthalmologic trials.

To offer digital analysis of internal clinical trials at supreme level, Professor Eter and her team established the UKM Reading Center. The IT-platform was constructed under the aegis of the Department of Medical Informatics and teh IT-Department of the Faculty of Medicine. Clinical trials require standardized acquisition, processing and analysis of clinical data ensured by internal validation of all applied procedures, high reproducibility of assessment results and an experienced group of ocular imaging specialists.

The members of our staff are physicians and scientists possessing a wealth of experience in clinical trials and the use of many different retinal imaging technologies for studies targeting a variety of ophthalmic diseases. The UKM Reading Center is supporting its partners with extensive clinical experience in trials of the anterior as well as posterior segment of the eye.

To ensure high quality results acquisition and analysis of de-identified images in the UKM Reading Center are pursued according to international study-specific protocols. Our standard operating procedures (SOP) adhere strictly to EVICRs as well as Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines. The grading protocols have been refined by our imaging specialists according to international standards. They have already been tested and optimized in several in-house trials delivering a large number of reproducible results. 

Since midyear 2017 the UKM Reading Center is additionally certified DIN ISO 9001-2015.
