Coronary Artery Disease is the disease that affects the coronary arteries and typically in a chronic or acute ischemic event.  The resulting heart problems (such as angina and myocardial infarction) are recognized as Coronary Heart Diseases (CHD).  CAD and CHD are the most common problems in adults and the leading cause of death in the US.  See Contractility, Myocardial Infarction, Left Ventricle, and Diastole.

Myocardial Solutions' technology has been used globally in over 70 major medical research centers and is established as the gold standard for strain measurement. The research has yielded over 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals (50 articles from Circulation and JACC alone) that validate CMR strain testing. MyoStrain’s predecessor software (HARP & VIRTUE) have 510(k) clearance and CE Mark certification.
MyoStrain has CE mark certification, and Myocardial Solutions is actively pursuing FDA 510(k) clearance for MyoStrain.
