MORRISVILLE, N.C., February 21, 2021 – Myocardial Solutions, Inc. (“MSI”) attended the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance’s (“SCMR”) 24th Annual Scientific Sessions, held virtually February 18-20, 2021. This year, SCMR main topics focused on new and traditional use cases of CMR, as well as exploring the use of CMR for assessing the cardiac effects of COVID-19 on patients. MSI’s flagship technology, MyoStrain®, was featured in three abstract posters highlighting its ability to help physicians detect early cardiotoxicity in cancer patients, quantify asymptomatic heart dysfunction in recovered COVID-19 athletes and provide rapid CMR-based adenosine stress testing for acute cardiac patients. 

MSI’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rafael Rivero, MD presented MyoStrain during Philips Healthcare’s user meeting and feature symposium. The presentation, titled “Transforming the Cancer & Cardiac Care Continuum. Early & Accurate Identification of Patients at Risk of Heart Failure,” the presentation discussed newly published clinical findings on MyoStrain, including pivotal data from the EMPATHY study and MyoStrain’s progressive dysfunction curve published in JACC Cardiovascular Imaging last month.  

Dr. Rivero states: “Over the past month, MyoStrain has played a key role in demonstrating the potential impact early detection and risk assessment may have on enabling better care for patients. Having been published in two peer-reviewed articles of two of the most prominent cardiology journals, the data validates MyoStrain’s immense clinical value as an informatic tool to help physicians guide early risk assessment and initiate individualized management for cardiac prevention.”
