There are no specific MRI findings associated with pulseless ventricular tachycardia. However, a cardiac MRI may be helpful when structural heart disease is implicated as an etiology and the assessment provided by echocardiography is not satisfactory. A cardiac MRI[1] is particularly helpful in the evaluation of structural heart disease i.e arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy as well it's infiltrative diseases such as sarcoidosis.[2]


2017 AHA/ACC/HRS Guideline for Management of Patients With Ventricular Arrhythmias and the Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death[3]

Left Ventricular Function and Imaging (DO NOT EDIT)[3]

Class IIa
"1.In patients presenting with VA who are suspected of having structural heart disease, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) can be useful to detect and characterize underlying structural heart disease. (Level of Evidence B)"
"2. LV imaging can be useful in patients undergoing biventricular pacing. (Level of Evidence C)"
