Abstract

Intravascular MR technology, using an intravascularly placed MR receiver probe to acquire high-resolution angiographic MR images (i.e. intravascular MR imaging) and to guide cardiovascular interventional therapies (i.e. intravascular MR-guided interventions), is a new, very attractive development in the field of MR imaging. The new technology offers unique advantages for cardiovascular imaging and interventions, including superior contrast capability and multiplanar imaging capabilities without the use of contrast agents and with no risk of ionizing radiation. The combination of intravascular MR techniques with other advanced MR imaging techniques, such as functional MR imaging, will open new avenues for the future comprehensive management of cardiovascular atherosclerotic disease. Further improvements in intravascular MR fluoroscopy with true real-time display, analogous to X-ray fluoroscopy, will dramatically establish the role of intravascular MR technology in modern medicine.
