AMRA Medical is a ground-breaking, international digital health company at the forefront of medical imaging and precision medicine. The company has developed a new global standard in body composition assessment, delivering multiple fat and muscle biomarkers with unrivaled precision – all from a 6-minute whole-body MRI scan.
AMRA was founded in 2010 in Linköping, Sweden, with the aim to support transformative care and vital decision-making, from clinical research to clinical care.
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.
