ArtFun+ measure arterial stiffness and flow biomarkers that are commonly recognized as a major risk factor for CV diseases and considered as major predictors of cardiovascular mortality.
ArtFun+ is the most clinically validated & most published technology for measuring arterial stiffness measurement by MRI1,2,3.
