Role of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in assessing ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathies

Abstract

One of the diagnostic challenges in cardiology is the assessment of patients with suspected cardiomyopathies. The traditional approach involves clinical history and examination, followed by echocardiography and invasive angiography. Advances in cardiac MRI enable cardiologists to comprehensively assess both ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathies, providing information regarding cardiac anatomy, myocardial and valve functions, as well as tissue characterization.
