VIDA Intelligence Platform Gains Functionality & Users

We released 15 version updates for the Intelligence Platform in 2023--more than one per month! Key new features include the case viewer, bulk upload, & advanced search. The platform is now empowering more than 5,000 trial site users in 43 countries to produce high quality trial data with ease.  


We had the pleasure of speaking with 4 industry luminaries in 2023 as part of our webinar series. These conversations were a big hit with clinical trial sponsors and researchers. Click the links below for highlights of these discussions:









  1. John Newell, MD, FACR - Developing the Digital Lung
  2. Ajay Sheshadri, MD, MSCI - Beyond RESIST in Oncology Trials 
  3. Anna Podolanczuk, MD - Digital Biomarkers in ILD/IPF Trials
  4. Igor Barjaktarevic, MD, PhD - Digital Biomarkers in Alpha-1/COPD Trials
In-person events were back in full swing. We were honored to be selected as a Showcase Company at the Respiratory Innovation Summit in May.

If we didn't connect with you there, we probably did at SCOPE, ERS, the IPF Summit, LSI, GOLD COPD, or the International Workshop on Pulmonary Imaging. 





Research Collaborations
It was an especially impactful year of research collaborations with leading academic researchers and pharmaceutical scientists. 


Tezepelumab and Mucus Plugs in Patients with Moderate-to-Severe Asthma

The headline publication of 2023 was undoubtedly this landmark mucus scoring publication in NEJM Evidence. VIDA is proud to have provided the mucus quantification for this study, using our patent-pending mucus workflow to optimize accuracy and efficiency.



Repeatability of Pulmonary Quantitative CT Measurements in COPD

From the SPIROMICS group was an excellent paper on the repeatability of digital imaging biomarkers. The paper found excellent reliability of imaging biomarkers, especially when high QC standards are applied.

VIDA in the Press

Our people and our mission caught the eye of the media on several occasions in 2023. Here are a few notable appearances:

Working with sites to generate high quality image data & digital biomarkers for sponsors is serious stuff, but that doesn't mean we don't know how to have fun as a team.

The dogs of VIDA were one of our most shared social medial posts.


☢️ We have over 10 certified imaging technologists on staff to support trial sites. We surprised them with a radiology themed celebration on Rad Tech day.  🎉


Weekly happy hour celebrations have been going strong for 3 straight years at VIDA. They serve as a chance to celebrate accomplishments and have some fun together. In this session, we played a game based on VIDA swag.

In the same spirit, here's a toast 🍾 to you. We extend our warmest wishes for the holiday season and a fantastic New Year!
