Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) offers several acquisition techniques for accurate and highly reproducible quantitative assessment of global and regional ventricular function, blood flow, myocardial perfusion at rest and stress, necrotic and scarred myocardium, and heart iron load. The ongoing clinical need for objective and accurate assessment of myocardial function and recent advances in CMR hardware and automated and semi-automated image analysis software resulted in significant improvements in image quality and a reduction in imaging time.
