Using Segmental Strain to Overcome Diagnostic Limitations

Today's diagnostics often cannot detect heart dysfunction until symptoms occur. MyoStrain utilizes segmental strain to measure 48 segments of the heart and provides physicians with a unique diagnostic tool to help identify regional dysfunction before the heart as a whole is affected.

More About Segmental Strain

What Does Segmental Strain Do Differently?

MyoStrain uses segmental strain to help physicians detect regional heart dysfunction early and before global heart function is impacted.¹ Measured across 48 segments of the heart, MyoStrain helps physicians determine weaker areas of the heart where abnormal contraction is occurring.

Measuring Heart Contraction: Segmental vs. Global

As shown below, using segmental strain allows physicians to differentiate and measure weak, or abnormal, heart segments. Conversely, because global strain measures the heart as a whole, healthy segments often overcompensate for abnormal segments, making the heart appear healthy.

Protecting the Heart During Cancer Therapy

For cancer patients who may be at a higher risk of developing heart failure, the MyoHealth score provides solutions to help cardio-oncologists manage cardio-protection over time without interfering with cancer treatment.

Improving Chest Pain Triage & Workflow in the ER

Over 10 million Americans visit the ER with unexplained chest pain symptoms every year.¹ In 10-15 minutes, the MyoHealth score may help physicians to quickly risk stratify patients and refer patients towards optimal treatment pathways.

Detecting Cardiac Effects of Chronic Diseases Early to Prevent Heart Failure

Nearly half of Americans will have some form of cardiovascular disease by 2035.² MyoStrain helps physicians to quantify the effects of heart diseases on patient heart function, enabling preventative care pathways for patients at risk of heart failure.

Managing Acute Heart Failure Treatment for Improved Quality of Life

Over half of acute heart failure patients are re-hospitalized within six months.³ MyoHealth scores help physicians monitor and manage the effects of treatment to reduce hospitalizations and improve quality of life.
