Thanks for using SliceVault! Our mission is to help you improve your imaging based clinical trials. With an intuitive online interface, we make it simple to collect, manage, and analyse medical images in clinical trials.

We provide a compliant and secure cloud-based platform to keep your medical images and related data safe and accessible, while helping you manage and run efficient clinical trials involving multiple stakeholders and processes.

Our Acceptable Use Policy outlines your responsibilities when using our Services. By using our Services, you’re agreeing to be bound by these Terms, and our Acceptable Use Policy.

Your Stuff & Your Permissions
When you use our Services, you provide us with data such as medical images, metadata, files, query messages, checklist answers, case report forms, contact information, and so on (“Client Data”). Client Data is yours. These Terms don’t give us any rights to Client Data except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.

We need your permission to do things like hosting Client Data, backing it up, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our Services also provide you with features like data de-identification, optical character recognition (OCR), sharing, querying, QC checklists, central reading checklists, image preview, image management, sorting and organization of data to improve efficiency and reduce burden on users. To provide these and other features, SliceVault accesses, make modifications to, stores, and scans Client Data. You give us permission to do those things.
