Cardiac magnetic resonance

Specialty of Adult Cardiology

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive technique used to image the heart study without using ionizing radiation (Rx). In a single scan, it allows the study of anatomy and cardiovascular function (heart and great vessels) as well as the assessment of myocardial perfusion by pharmacological stress tests in patients with coronary disease. It is mainly used for anatomical and functional study of congenital and acquired heart disease (cardiomyopathy, valvular disease, tissue characterization of masses and tumors, study of pulmonary veins, diagnosis of anomalous origin of the coronary arteries, quantification of cardiovascular flows, etc.) and allows the complete evaluation of ischemic heart disease (location, extent and impact on ventricular function and myocardial infarction detection of myocardial ischemia by pharmacological stress studies with adenosine or dobutamine). For a complete study cardiac or cardiovascular function including, myocardial perfusion and viability is accurate administration of paramagnetic contrast, being the same exceptional allergic reactions, unlike the iodinated contrast used in examinations Rx
