Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the adult population in the United States. Imaging is an essential component of the management of CAD, providing both diagnostic and prognostic information. This review provides an overview of the use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in the evaluation of ischemia in both acute and chronic settings. The authors compare CMR imaging with other imaging modalities, highlighting the advantages and opportunities of CMR imaging, as well as limitations.
