MuscleSound Research

MuscleSound’s FDA Registered technology has been utilized by Duke University Medical Center, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Appalachian State University and other leading medical centers.

Case Studies and Papers

We believe our one-of-a-kind clinical decision-making software is a new standard of care. Others do as well. Below are case studies and papers that confirm the importance and impactfulness of MuscleSound’s technology.

Case Study

Prehab at Duke University Medical Center

WHO: 63 year-old female with bladder cancer

WHAT: Prepare for surgical stress by improving nutrition and fitness

OUTCOME: By improving overall nutrition and fitness, and guiding and tracking these changes via MuscleSound, the patient was able to increase several key health indicators, ultimately decreasing their mortality rate by 13%.

98% Correlation: MuscleSound vs. CT Scans

The above images are examples of muscle quality and muscle mass evaluations taken at Duke University Medical Center via CT scan (top images) and MuscleSound’s ultrasound analytics software (bottom images). The assessments were performed at the same time on three separate patients. Duke University Medical Center showed a 98% initial correlation for muscle quality between MuscleSound and gold-standard CT scan.

Research Papers

Proof that technology and associated assessments work is key in any industry, especially healthcare. Below are a variety research papers that confirm the importance of muscle health and how MuscleSound can improve patient outcomes. Click to enlarge, download and read the full articles (PDF).

“MuscleSound image analysis uses proprietary software to identify muscle and fat boundaries, and analyze muscle composition using principles and calibration equations and algorithms. The technology has been extensively used in healthy individuals, elite athletes and critically ill patients, in whom temporal changes in muscle composition, including intramuscular glycogen content, have been described and confirmed by muscle biopsies.”
