Transforming the Cardiac & Cancer Care Continuum

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.

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.

MyoStrain Testing May Change Cardiac Patient Management

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.

Results Simplified Into One MyoHealth Score

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.

Monitoring & Managing Patient Heart Health Over Time

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.
