Abstract

Over the past decade, coronary magnetic resonance imaging has been transformed from a scientific curiosity to a clinically useful imaging tool for patients with known or suspected anomalous coronary arteries or coronary artery aneurysms and for assessment of coronary artery bypass graft patency. Coronary magnetic resonance imaging also appears to be of clinical value for assessment of native vessel integrity in selected patients, especially those patients with suspected left main/multivessel disease. Among patients referred for X-ray angiography, a normal coronary magnetic resonance imaging strongly suggests the absence of severe multivessel disease. Technical and methodological advances in motion suppression, along with increasing clinical experience will no doubt facilitate improved visualization of the distal and branch vessel
