Sweden, Linköping: Tuesday, February 22, 2021 — Recent studies highlight a connection between sarcopenia and chronic liver diseases. Liver diseases can lead to the need for liver transplant where the assessment of sarcopenia is critical to patient care decisions. At the approaching American Society of Transplantation (AST) Cutting Edge of Transplantation (CEoT) 2021 Virtual Meeting, February 25-27th, AMRA Medical will be showcasing AMRA® MAsS (Muscle Assessment Score) Scan.
The upcoming AMRA® MAsS Scan is an MRI based service delivering fat and muscle biomarkers together with a muscle assessment score. By using a rapid MRI protocol, a reference database, and patent protected technology, the fully automated process will deliver an easy-to-read report.
AMRA® MAsS Scan clearance is expected in early 2022 and planned to be released in the US and Europe. With a brief MRI scan clinicians will be able to assess sarcopenia more accurately and make critical decisions in patients being considered for organ transplant. The MAsS will enable a more reliable and precise way to determine intervention care and ultimately improve patient health.
