Abstract:

Cardiac MR imaging is an effective method for noninvasive imaging of the heart. The technology has been limited in the past because of imaging difficulties associated with cardiac motion. In recent years, however, cardiac MR imaging has broadened its spectrum of applications in cardiovascular disease with impressive advances in spatial and temporal resolution and increased imaging speeds. This review presents the current clinical applications of cardiac MR imaging for evaluation of cardiac disease in infiltrative disorders such as amyloidosis, hemochromatosis, and sarcoidosis.
