Abstract

Because of its high resolution, 3-D capabilities, noninvasive nature, and capacity for soft tissue characterization, MR imaging has emerged as a powerful modality to assess the process of atherosclerosis comprehensively in different arterial beds, including the coronary arteries. It holds great promise in studies involving longitudinal follow-up of plaque progression and for detection of therapeutic intervention-related changes. With the development of newer, target-specific contrast agents and molecular imaging applications, an exponential growth in its current applications is anticipated.
