Strain analysis module

Strain analysis module

The Strain analysis module is an additional module to Segment or Segment CMR.The module has been developed in close collaboration with researchers at Cardiovascular Imaging and Dynamics, Dept. of Cardiovascular Sciences at KU Leuven in Belgium.
The Strain module bears the CE marking of conformity and is FDA 510(k) approved with 510(k) number K163076 as a module to Segment CMR.

– Short-axis and long-axis images
– Left ventricle (LV) and right ventricle (RV)
– Feature tracking in cine and Tagging analysis in tagged images

Strain measurements
– Radial, circumferential and longitudinal strain reported globally and sector wise
– Strain over time and peak strain
– Strain rate, rotation and torsion

– Myocardial tracking over time in both cine and tagging images
– Strain measurements over time presented in graph
– Bullseye plot in a 17 segment model depicting peak strain measurements
– Export functionality for movies, images and strain values

Input to Strain module
– LV and/or RV segmentation in one diastolic time frame in selected slices

The module is provided for both clinical usage as well as research. The module is not freely available for research. Please contact us on if you are interested in a quote or an evaluation license.
