Our Solution Approach
From Enterprise to Consumer
Our health mapping applications draw on advances in imaging biomarker development with quantitative MRI. Our software platform technology can be used with images from any MRI scanner, and run on any computer, locally or in the cloud.
Our focus is on improving assessment of the most common health issues arising from obesity, injury, and ageing. More sensitive detection aids in better treatment and monitoring, and improves outcomes when problems are detected at early onset.
Map percentage fat anywhere in the body from images collected in a short 30 second scan. Measure percentage fat within and around organs, the ratio of visceral fat to subcutaneous fat, and total percentage fat.
A "virtual liver biopsy" for the non-invasive assessment of liver disease. LiverMap aims to map all key histological measures of liver pathology - fibrosis, fat, inflammation, and iron - in only 10 minutes of scan time.
Muscle recovery from injury is linked with the inflammatory process, while weakness and atrophy may owe to fat infiltration. MuscleMap aims to map inflammation plus percentage fat in 5 minutes of scanning.
Joint damage and cartilage wear impact us all over our lives. JointMap aims to map proteoglycan concentration in cartilage as an early indicator of joint damage, along with maps of the cartilage collagen matrix.
Evolution of Applications
Imaging Biomarkers for Body Analytics
MR parameters with potential as imaging biomarkers are determined using our patented multi-component relaxometry (MCR) techniques.
Imaging biomarkers are mapped pixel-by-pixel over an image to obtain a detailed picture of tissue health, generating precise body analytics.
Imaging biomarkers and body analytics are available for bundled use through our virtual health dashboard, independent of the MRI scanner.
The Dive-in Platform is a dynamic post processing software package for quantitative image analysis. Dive-in offers easy MR parameter mapping - foundation for imaging biomarkers and health applications - plus stepwise image math operations for custom processing and flexible image viewing.
Standout features include:
The Dive-in platform comes in three versions, ranging from fundamental MR parameter mapping to specific biomarker and health applications:
Dive-in-Lite: Our baseline version covering image viewing, enhancement, measurement, and maths, along with basic mapping of MR tissue parameters.
Dive-in-Plus: Extending upon Dive-in Lite, with multi-component biomarkers, plus automatic map statistics and histograms for greater accuracy and insight.
Dive-in-Pack: All the features of Dive-in Plus with addition of our Map Apps. FatMap is our first offer in the Dive-in Pack, for mapping percentage body fat.

Workflow for Applications
Image acquisition settings are entered from the Application’s data collection protocol and are saved for future use.
Acquired image data is analysed on the clients PC with the Dive-in Platform, or using an Application specific Wizard.
Clear and concise reports of the severity of a given biomarker are generated throughout the tissue of interest.
More informed decisions can be made to aid in the identification and treatment of debilitating health problems.

Access our expertise in imaging biomarker validation and body analytics with our quantitative image analysis services. Be confident in the quality of your quantitative MRI endpoints, with our quality control checks of scanner performance, as well as in-house analysis performed using our research platform.
Our imaging biomarkers are designed to be scanner neutral, enabling image acquisition on any make of scanner, at both 1.5T and 3T field strengths. Scanner neutrality enables the conduct of multi-centre trials, and the standardised assessment of large patient cohorts for phase III clinical studies.
We provide expert advice to imaging centres to assist with the setup of image acquisition protocols. Validation of scanner configuration and stability can also be performed on a regular basis, by running the imaging biomarker acquisition protocols on standard MRI scanner quality assurance phantoms.
FatMap is our first biomarker "app", currently available for study use. With FatMap you can map percentage fat down to mm resolution within the body, to quantify fat with in organs and tissues such as liver and muscle, or to identify the extent of visceral or pericardial fat.
For future biomarkers please see our Pipeline for Applications above.
Biomarker mapping results are presented on single page PDF reports, that can be readily shared with mobile devices. All reports show the representative biomarker value for the region analysed, along with the colour biomarker map and histogram. Histograms enable easy visual interpretation of the spread of biomarker values throughout body tissues.
Please search our site map to find the MRI centre closest to you, with the list of imaging biomarker tests that they provide.
The Dive-in platform allows technologists and research scientists to explore, manipulate and analyse MR data to map multiple biomarkers of tissue pathology. This approach yields sensitive parameters to detect physiological changes in patients following intervention. Additional insight can be obtained into the mode of action of the intervention, to optimise therapy, and improve patient selection.
MagnePath has specialist expertise in the conduct of imaging biomarker studies, from QMRI protocol design to analysis of the image data. Please contact Support if you require any assistance. If you are interested in investigating the suitability of a specific MR parameter to a assessing particular condition, please contact us, as we would be interested to hear of your potential use case.
Please contact us if you would like further details on our image acquisition protocols for provision on your MRI scanners. Our protocols are designed to collect the best spread of quantitative data for greater accuracy and precision in MR parameter mapping, whilst also being suitable to the capacity of scanners currently on the market.
Core Engine License
Our core biomarker mapping engine may be desirable to have deployed within your scanner software platform. Our engine also runs separable from the user interface, which further allows capacity for remote deployment on centralised or cloud servers. Patient information is stripped from communications, ensuring HIPAA compliance.
Our MR parameter mapping technology extends the current range of potential imaging biomarkers available through our techniques to extract multiple relaxation and diffusion rates per voxel. This can be done from image data sets collected in clinically acceptable scan times. Please contact us if you would like to partner on application development.
