Driving Therapeutic Innovation
Industry is increasingly focused on Precision Medicine. Research has therefore shifted towards individual variability in genetics, lifestyle, biology – and body composition.
Precise, automated body composition analysis can improve your research and clinical decision making. AMRA supports industry with data-driven trial optimization, across a multitude of diseases.
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
- Faster, More Cost-Effective Trials
The analysis of multiple biomarkers from a single, rapid scan provides a time-efficient, cost-effective, and innovative approach to analysing complex pathological processes across a multitude of diseases.
- Reduced Patient Burden
Rapid whole body MRI, in as little as 6 minutes, reduces the patient burden when compared with traditional MRI, thus supporting optimised recruitment and retention in your clinical trials.
- At the Forefront of Precision Medicine
AMRA® Researcher is validated for its high accuracy and precision, allowing for the early detection of small physiological changes and evidence of treatment efficacy, as well as the ability to phenotype and stratify populations.
- Light Footprint and Standardized
No machine or software installation, partners well with your other imaging needs (e.g. MRE), and standardised across major MR platforms, thus supporting use in multicenter studies.
- 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 also 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
