MRI analysis for animal research

Request a demo

Caas MRV FARM (Magnetic Resonance Ventricular analysis For Animal Research Measurements) supports researchers in the quantitative analysis of the function and viability of the heart and myocardial perfusion of cardiac MR exams.

The American Heart Association (AHA) 17 segment model is supported for all result types. Results are available in graphs, bulls’ eyes and tables and include ejection fraction, end diastolic and end systolic volumes, myocardial mass, and wall characteristics. Also the infarct volume and transmurality can be quantified, just as time-intensity curve parameters related to perfusion.

Key product features
  • Automatic, semi-automatic and manual segmentation of left and right ventricle
  • Segmentation of endo-, epicardial and papillary contours
  • Automatic infarct detection within the viability module
  • Breathing motion correction within the perfusion module
