Most recent technical innovations in cardiovascular MR imaging (CMRI) are presented in this review. They include hardware and software developments, and novelties in parametric mapping. All these recent improvements lead to high spatial and temporal resolution and quantitative information on the heart structure and function. They make it achievable ambitious goals in the field of magnetic resonance, such as the early detection of cardiovascular pathologies.

In this review article, we present recent innovations in CMRI, emphasizing the progresses performed and the solutions proposed to some yet opened technical problems.

Keywords: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI), accelerated CMRI, cardiac ultrahigh field MRI, parametric mapping, T1 mapping, T2 mapping, T2* mapping, tagging, 4D flow MRI, cardiac MRS.
