AMRA MEDICAL DEVICE
Using Body Composition Profiling from a rapid MRI scan, our medical device division delivers solutions to support clinicians in the prediction and prevention of disease, and better informed, personalized patient treatments.
AMRA MEDICAL RESEARCH
Using highly precise and accurate image-based biomarkers, our medical research division delivers solutions to support researchers, in clinical trials and academic studies in metabolic and musculoskeletal conditions.
Headquartered in Sweden, AMRA was founded in 2010 as a spin-off of Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), the Department of Biomedical Engineering (IMT), and the Department of Medicine and Health (IMH) at Linköping University, Sweden.
Following the documentary, “Super-Size Me”, AMRA founders Magnus Borga and Olof Dahlqvist Leinhard decided to investigate how MR imaging could be used to measure our bodies, including interventional effects on fat and muscle volumes. Their research led to the development of a patented method for the automated analysis of MR images, the formation of AMRA, and to the research that is aimed to enhance the evidence base needed to predict and prevent disease.
