Dr. Kwong and colleagues from Brigham and Womens, got to the news headlines(CBS, TIME, FOX, U.S. News) with study on the effects of fish oil in patients after suffering from a heart attack; QMass was used for the measurements.

From the paper: “ After six months, compared to the placebo group, those in the fish oil group had less fibrosis, or thickening and scarring, of the heart muscle in the region of the heart attack. The also had less blood left in the left ventricle of the heart after the heart muscle fully contracted, which means the heart was pumping more effectively.”
