Cardiac Stress MR

Listen to Sandeep Hedgire, MD, Chief Cardiovascular Imaging Fellow discuss cardiac stress MR. During the past decade, cardiac stress MR has been developed into an effective technique for examining myocardial perfusion and diagnosing obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). The technique has the advantages of high spatial resolution, lack of ionizing radiation, and ease of assessing myocardial viability, wall motion, and cardiac anatomy. In addition, cardiac stress MR is not compromised by attenuation artifacts due to obesity or breast tissue, which can confound SPECT imaging.
