MORRISVILLE, N.C., July 22, 2021 – Myocardial Solutions’ software platform, MyoStrain, was featured in a new Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance publication evaluating a multiparametric assessment of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). LVH, which can be a result of an array of diseases and conditions, makes determining the cause of the hypertrophy crucial to implementing the most effective therapy. MyoStrain was able to detect and risk-stratify LVH patients, offering needed insights to clinicians for diagnostic and care purposes.
The study compared MyoStrain versus traditional CMR metrics in its ability to evaluate different forms of LVH in athletes and patients with hypertensive heart disease (HHD), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), and cardiac amyloidosis.
Results demonstrated MyoStrain’s accuracy and reproducibility for the detection of cardiac dysfunction across multiple disease states and the potential in helping clinicians differentiate between endurance athletes and patients with HCM, HHD, or cardiac amyloidosis. This highlights MyoStrain's clinical utility in identifying patients in need of care based on the extent and severity of subclinical dysfunction.
“MyoStrain has demonstrated the ability to risk stratify patients with similar symptoms and conditions to help physicians optimize therapy in patients with enlarged hearts.” said Jim Whayne, Chief Clinical Officer of Myocardial Solutions. Mr. Whayne went on to say, “For cardiac patients undergoing treatment, MyoStrain has the unique ability to detect subtle changes in heart health based on an established MyoHealth risk score. MyoHealth has the potential to impact cardiac patient care in multiple ways including early detection, risk stratification, and management of cardiac diseases.”
