With cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), the necessity of invasive coronary angiography may be increasingly avoided. CMR provides information about the anatomy of the coronaries themselves (e.g. anomalies, aneurysm), functional information on myocardial blood flow (dobutamine-stress-MR, perfusion measurement) and detailed information on cell-mediated alterations (e.g. fibrosis, necrosis). However, visualization of distal coronary vessels and the small side branches is not yet adequate, so that complete replacement of invasive coronary angiography by CMR is not possible.
