Strain-Encoding (SENC) Imaging

Strain Encoding (SENC) in Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a technique developed by Nael Osman’s group at Johns Hopkins University for imaging the strain of deforming tissue using MRI. Relevant Papers Korosoglou G, Gitsioudis G, Voss A, Lehrke S, Riedle N, Buss SJ,...

Harmonic Phase (HARP) Imaging

The HARmonic Phase (HARP) algorithm[1] is a medical image analysis technique capable of extracting and processing motion information from tagged magnetic resonance image (MRI) sequences. Initially developed by N. F. Osman and J. L. Prince at the Image Analysis and...

Chemotherapy / Cardiotoxicity

New advances in chemotherapies have offered significant improvements in cancer survival, but can often present negative side effects to the heart.  Myocardial Solutions’ products such as SENC to measure subtle changes in heart function to assess the...

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Coronary Artery Disease is the disease that affects the coronary arteries and typically in a chronic or acute ischemic event.  The resulting heart problems (such as angina and myocardial infarction) are recognized as Coronary Heart Diseases (CHD).  CAD and CHD are the...

Myocardial Infarction

Myocardial infarction (from Latin: Infarctus myocardii, MI) or acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the medical term for an event commonly known as a heart attack. An MI occurs when blood stops flowing properly to a part of the heart, and the heart muscle is injured...

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is the measurable deterioration of the function of the myocardium which typically leads to heart failure, irregular heart beat, or sudden cardiac death. Cardiomyopathies, however, are not attributed directly to coronary heart disease. There are a number...
