Stimulating New Medical Insights
The medical community is increasingly focused on Precision Medicine. Research has therefore shifted towards individual variability in genetics, lifestyle, biology, - and body composition. AMRA is advancing precision medicine, enabling researchers to better characterize patients at baseline and monitor interventional effects.
AMRA improves the understanding of relationships between body composition biomarkers and disease development, helping to support data observations and stimulate new hypotheses.
AMRA® Researcher is a product for classification and quantification of global and regional fat volumes, fat fractions and lean tissue volumes in comparison to normal ranges. With rapid MRI scanning and automated image analysis, you now have access to a time-efficient, cost-effective and innovative means of analyzing complex pathological processes.
Precise segmentation of fat and muscles. Additional muscle groups and/or individual muscles can be segmented and measured using 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Precise Body Composition Biomarkers
- Visceral Adipose Tissue (VAT)
VAT within the abdominal cavity, excluding adipose tissue outside the abdominal cavity
- Muscle Fat Infiltration (MFI)
Quantification of the average thigh muscle fat infiltration
- Abdominal Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue (ASAT)
ASAT measured from the top of the femoral head to the top of the thoracic vertebrae T9
- Lean Thigh Muscle Volume
Left and right posterior thigh muscles (gluteus, iliac, adductor, hamstring) and, anterior thigh muscles (quadriceps femoris and sartorius)
- Liver Fat
Proton-density Fat Fraction (PDFF), a non-invasive and precise way to measure liver fat content
- Individual Muscle Volumes
Precise quantification of group or individual muscle volumes in the body
Additional measurements may be available depending on specific protocol needs
