This precise and advanced imaging tool provides anatomic and functional information and offers the ability to image the heart in any plane. Like all magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac MR provides high resolution and does not use radiation.
Among its numerous capabilities, cardiac MR can help:
- Evaluate the structures and function of the heart, valves, major vessels and surrounding structures
- Detect, diagnose and manage coronary heart disease and a variety of cardiovascular problems
- Detects the buildup of plaque and blockages in the blood vessels and helps physicians determine the extent of damage caused by a heart attack or heart disease
- Helps to plan a patient's treatment for cardiovascular problems and monitor a patient's progress
