ImageBAT

®

Adiposs has developed ImageBAT®, the first product that makes brown and beige adipose tissue (BAT) visible with a fast and pain-free CT scan. It enables early detection of cachexia before patients lose body weight.

The diagnostic procedure with ImageBAT® will be simple, non-invasive and cost-effective: cancer and COPD patients will simply drink this add-on product before their routinely planned CT scans.

Early detection of cachexia

The hallmark of early cachexia are changes in body fat, when normal white fat becomes brown fat. Brown fat increases energy expenditure of patients and contributes to the development of body wasting.

ImageBAT® enables robust visualization and quantification of brown fat and therefore enables early detection of cachexia before patients lose body weight.
