Whole body, whole muscles – precisely the answer
September 17 – 20, 2021
AMRA is happily sponsoring the 2021 International LGMD Conference in conjunction with the Speak Foundation.
From AMRA’s MRI perspective, all human bodies are unique. Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) presents differently among individuals living with this disorder. This genetic disease is characterized by progressive pelvic and scapular girdle weakening, where muscle changes can be quite small at times. Therefore, LGMD MRI muscle and fat measurements must be precise and reliable.
What does this mean for those living with LGMD and researchers in the NMD space? As long as someone is having an MRI – get the full picture. The disease presents heterogeneously thus requiring a whole-body MRI to follow where LGMD is actually impacting a body. AMRA can deliver single muscles, muscle groups, and single MRI slice measurements. But why stop there? A person is not a single muscle or a single slice. A person is a whole body. So, scan and measure muscles and fatty infiltration throughout the entire body. Use AMRA’s MRI to potentially move drug treatment approval forward faster.
AMRA’s regulatory compliant processes paired with our precision and accuracy, are the safe and reliable way to see the small changes potentially sooner than functional tests.
