Body Composition and Medical Insights

AMRA is an active collaborator with the research community, dedicated to the advancement of metabolic research and its therapeutic application.

Designed to Play a Long-Term Role

The understanding of cancer has evolved from that of a single, life-threatening condition to a multifaceted disease with numerous presentations and individualized treatment options. If we advance our understanding of the relationships between fat, muscle and the development of disease, we can reshape our understanding of obesity and similarly begin to tailor treatments for individual body composition. With this goal in mind, AMRA is working to redefine our understanding of obesity and metabolic risk.

AMRA® Profiler Research, the cloud-based analysis service, supports researchers by extrapolating precise body composition measurements from MR images and assisting in defining the imaging biomarkers that will help identify the key factors involved in disease development.
