Overview

MRI

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging is used for infiltrative diseases like Fabry's disease.

ACC/AHA Guidelines- ACCF/ACR/AHA/NASCI/SCMR 2010 Expert Consensus Document on Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance[1] (DO NOT EDIT)

CMR may be used for assessment of patients with LV dysfunction or hypertrophy or suspected forms of cardiac injury not related to ischemic heart disease. When the diagnosis is unclear, CMR may be considered to identify the etiology of cardiac dysfunction in patients presenting with heart failure, including

  • evaluation of dilated cardiomyopathy in the setting of normal coronary arteries,
  • patients with positive cardiac enzymes without obstructive atherosclerosis on angiography,
  • patients suspected of amyloidosis or other infiltrative diseases,
  • hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,
  • arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, or
  • syncope or ventricular arrhythmia.
