Cardiac MRI Imaging

Cardiac MRI Research

By using different pulse sequences we can help visualize:

  • evaluating the anatomy and function of the heart chambers, valves, size and blood flow through major vessels and surrounding structures such as the pericardium (the fluid sac that surrounds the heart).

  • diagnosing a variety of cardiovascular (heart and/or blood vessel) disorders such as tumors, infections and inflammatory conditions.
  • evaluating the effects of coronary artery disease such as limited blood flow to the heart muscle and scarring within the heart muscle after a heart attack.
  • evaluating the effects of surgical changes, especially in patients with congenital heart disease.
  • evaluating the anatomy of the heart and blood vessels in children and adults with congenital heart disease.
