MORRISVILLE, N.C., December 16, 2021 – Three abstracts utilizing MyoStrain, Myocardial Solutions’ patented technology, were accepted and presented at the distinguished annual American Heart Association (AHA) 2021 Scientific Sessions on November 13-15. The abstracts were based on studies conducted at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus, OH.
Two of the published abstracts discussed utilizing myocardial strain to detect myocardial abnormalities in young athletes post-COVID-19 infection. The third abstract focused on Multisystem Inflammatory System in Children (MIS-C), evaluating strain measurements to detect abnormalities despite normal ejection fraction levels, uncovering myocardial dysfunction.
These abstracts display MyoStrain’s unique ability to detect myocardial abnormalities that often go undetected by traditional imaging – a potentially tremendous impact on the detection and monitoring of the effects of COVID.
