Cardiovascular MR (CMR) offers various options to detect ischemia in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Over the past few years, the evidence on many indications in the diagnosis of CAD and heart failure with CMR has accumulated [1, 2]. CMR provides combined diagnostic information, such as visualization of the vascular tree, cardiac anatomy and function, as well as measurements of blood flow in the vessels, ventricular wall motion, myocardial perfusion and viability. Most of the current applications for CMR imaging use contrast agents, either to improve image quality (e.g. angiography) or to generate contrast (e.g. delayed gadolinium enhancement or perfusion).
