MORRISVILLE, N.C., March 31, 2020 – Six new abstracts & posters showcasing MyoStrain® were published as part of the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) 69th Annual Scientific Session & Expo. The conference, which was scheduled to take place in Chicago, Illinois from March 28-30, was shifted to a virtual experience due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Three of the published abstracts discussed MyoStrain’s utility in predicting, detecting and managing cardiotoxicity from cancer therapies based on data from the PREFECT study (NCT03543228).

Another abstract featured MyoStrain as a tool for chest pain triage in emergency rooms, utilizing hyperventilation as stressor agent to identify ischemia. The other abstracts highlighted MyoStrain’s utilization in patients with myocarditis and valvular disease.

These publications at ACC 2020 demonstrate MyoStrain’s continued progress towards becoming the standard of care for assisting physicians to measure cardiac health.

To view the presented MyoStrain abstracts and presentations, see the list below:

Steen H, et al.  Cardiotoxicity during cancer therapy causes more regional than global dysfunction: the PREFECT study (NCT03543228).  ACC 2020.

Steen H, et al.  Intramyocardial fast-SENC CMR strain is less impacted by compensatory mechanisms when detecting cardiotoxicity than echocardiography: the PREFECT study (NCT03543228).   ACC 2020.

Steen H, et al.  Regional intramyocardial dysfunction with fast-SENC CMR assesses cardiotoxicity risk before initiating cancer therapy – the PREFECT study (NCT03543228).   ACC 2020.
