Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a precise and advanced imaging tool that provides high-resolution images of the heart without radiation. Among its numerous capabilities, cardiac MR can:
- 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
- Detect the buildup of plaque and blockages in the blood vessels and help physicians determine the extent of damage caused by a heart attack or heart disease
- Help plan a patient's treatment for cardiovascular problems and monitor progress
Cardiac MRIs are conducted at the Fairfax MRI Center. To schedule call 703-204-8333.
