Abstract

Interventional cardiac MRI has been undergoing rapid development because of the availability of MRI compatible interventional catheters, and the increased performance of the MRI systems. Intravascular techniques do not require an open access scanner, and hence higher imaging performance during procedures can be achieved. Now, with the availability of a short, relatively open cylindrical bore scanner high imaging performance is also available to guide direct surgical procedures.
