MyoStrain is transforming the way physicians manage and monitor patient heart health, providing a proactive, patient-centric solution to help physicians improve outcomes and prevent heart failure.
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.
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.
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.
The proprietary and non-invasive MyoStrain® test is a 10-minute, quantitative heart function assessment using high-speed MRI to help physicians detect early dysfunction across 48 segments of the heart.
Patients undergo a 12-heartbeat MRI scan without the need for radiation, contrast, or breath-hold
Directly measures the percentage of normally contracting myocardium across 48 segments
Provides high reproducibility across sites, operators and MR vendors
Creates a personalized patient report, helping physicians make individualized treatment decisions
The rapid and accurate MyoStrain test produces a comprehensive report detailing a patient's heart function and calculates the patient's MyoHealth™ score. The MyoHealth™ score is a single number indicating the percentage of normally functioning heart muscle tissue in the left ventricle.
The MyoHealth™ score helps physicians to better understand their patient's heart health. By enabling physicians to monitor the effects of disease and treatments on the heart over time, the MyoHealth score empowers physicians to individualize care and manage cardio-protective therapy through the course of cancer treatment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
