AMRA is an international digital health company and the first in the world to transform images from a rapid, 6-minute whole body MRI scan into precise, 3D-volumetric fat and muscle measurements.

AMRA’s cloud-based analysis service – AMRA® Profiler Research – offers precise, automated insights that have far-reaching implications for the pharmaceutical industry, academic R&D and, soon, clinical practice.

Our Origins

Headquartered in Sweden, AMRA was founded in 2010 as a spin-off of Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), the Department of Biomedical Engineering (IMT), and the Department of Medicine and Health (IMH) at Linköping University, Sweden.

Our History

Following Morgan Spurlock’s documentary, “Super-Size Me”, AMRA founders Magnus Borga and Olof Dahlqvist Leinhard decided to investigate how MR imaging could be used to measure our bodies, including interventional effects on fat and muscle volumes. Their research led to the development of a patented method for the automated analysis of MR images, the formation of AMRA, and to the research that is now aimed at redefining obesity and metabolic risk.

Our Mission

is to confront our global health challenges by establishing the foundation for body composition measurement and providing the knowledge needed to predict and prevent diseases.

Our Vision

is a new, fundamental way of thinking about health. We provide knowledge to the medical community so that every individual can become — and stay — healthy.
