Abstract

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is highly precise for morphological and functional analyses of the myocardium, and has been used to assess different types of cardiomyopathies. Its ability to characterize tissue, especially with gadolinium (Gd) delayed-enhancement techniques, has shown promising results for the diagnosis of arrhythmogenlc cardiomyopathies. In this review we discuss the background and potential of this approach, as well as its usefulness for assessing arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies.
