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 MRI provides high resolution and does not use radiation.
Among its numerous capabilities, cardiac MRI 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
- Detect 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
- Help the doctor plan a patient's treatment for cardiovascular problems and monitor a patient's progress.
