Academic Research

Stimulating New Medical Insights

AMRA is an active supporter of the academic community. We know that a better understanding of body composition and disease development helps support your data observations and new hypotheses.

AMRA® Researcher

With as little as 6 minutes in an MRI scanner, our advanced analysis transforms your MR images into precise, and standardized fat and muscle measurements.

Why AMRA® Researcher

  • Encourages Collaborative Research
    AMRA is standardized across the major 1.5 and 3T MR platforms. In addition, AMRA does not require any installations, is compatible with other imaging technologies, and provides automated, cloud-based analysis, supporting use by multiple research groups.
  • Multiple Fat & Muscle Biomarkers from a Single Scan
    Information on multiple biomarkers can be gathered from a single scan, providing a time-efficient and cost-effective method for the analysis and further understanding of complex disease processes.
  • Reduced Patient Burden
    Rapid whole body MRI, in as little as 6 minutes, reduces the burden on patients compared with traditional MRI, thus supporting optimised recruitment and retention in research studies.
  • At the Forefront of Precision Medicine
    AMRA® Researcher is validated for its high accuracy and precision, which can allow for the early detection of small physiological changes and evidence of interventional efficacy, as well as the ability to phenotype and stratify populations.
  • Retrospective Analysis on Previously Acquired MR Images
    In some cases, AMRA may be able to retrospectively analyse MR images from your prior studies or patient cohorts.

What We Measure

  • Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT)
    AMRA measures Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT) within the abdominal cavity, excluding adipose tissue outside the abdominal skeletal muscles and adipose tissue and lipids within the cavity, posterior of the spine and back muscles.
  • Abdominal Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue (ASAT)
    AMRA measures Abdominal Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue (ASAT) in the abdomen from the top of the femoral head to the top of the thoracic vertebrae T9.
  • Liver Fat
    AMRA uses Proton-Density Fat Fraction (PDFF) to provide a non-invasive, precise measurement of liver fat content.
  • Muscle Fat Infiltration (MFI)
    AMRA accurately quantifies muscle fat infiltration through measurements taken in each measured muscle.
  • Lean Thigh Muscle Volume
    AMRA measures posterior and anterior muscles for the left and right thigh. Posterior thigh muscles include gluteus, iliac, adductor, and hamstring muscles on respective sides. Anterior thigh muscles include quadriceps femurs and sartorius.
  • Individual Muscle Volumes
    AMRA is able to precisely quantify groups or individual muscle volumes in the body.

Additional measurements may be available depending on specific protocol needs
