Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


INTRODUCTION Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) (Lund 2001) is a promising imaging modality with substantial clinical applications thanks to its unique diagnostic versatility. CMRI provides detailed anatomical information about the heart and also allows for the assessments of global and regional cardiac function, volumes, and mass, and the assessments of myocardial perfusion, valvular function, and tissue characterization. In this chapter various established and emerging clinical applications of CMRI will be discussed.
