Unique feature tracking, without additional acquisition
Caas MR Strain – part of Pie Medical Imaging’s CMR software platform – uses feature tracking to detect the ventricular deformation patterns and functional abnormalities of the heart wall. This can be analyzed before such abnormalities become obvious with conventional parameters. Caas MR Strain includes Global Longitudinal Strain (GLS) analysis, which has been proven to be more sensitive for systolic function assessment than Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF).
- Three strain types are determined: longitudinal, circumferential, and radial;
- Global Longitudinal Strain including Peak Strain (%) and Time to Peak Strain (ms);
- AHA 17 segment model including strain type choice;
- User segment model with up to 20 segments per slice
All results are auto-populated to the report.
