In our clinic, the most common indication for which we perform cardio-MR examinations is the evaluation of patients with ischemic heart disease, as it follows:

  • Detection of myocardial ischemia by stress cardio-MR (evaluation of myocardial infusion during adenosine infusion)
  • Evaluation of residual myocardial viability in patients with a history of myocardial infarction.

Another important part of the Cardio – MR examinations is performed for the following indications:

  • Evaluation of patients with normal coronary myocardial necrosis (MINOCA): MRI offers the final diagnosis in 75% of them (myocarditis, myocardial infarction, Tako-Tsubo or other cardiomyopathies) with a special impact on the treatment
  • Myocarditis (including evaluation of suspected cardiac sarcoidosis)
  • Establishing the etiological diagnosis of cardiomyopathies: dilatative and nondilatative, ARVC, amyloid, Fabry, hemochromatosis, CMH
  • Accurate assessment of LV and RV dimensions and function
  • Assessment of aortic dimensions, aortic arch anatomy and aortic valve morphology without administration of contrast substance
  • Assessment of severity of valvulopathies
  • Evaluation of pericardial inflammation for establishing the diagnosis of acute pericarditis or the diagnosis of constrictive pericarditis
  • Morphological and structural evaluation of cardiac tumors
  • Identification or exclusion of intra-cardiac thrombosis
  • Accurate assessment of the flow ratio in cardiac shunts and evaluation of adult congenital heart malformations
  • Evaluation of iron and myocardial iron loading in polytransfused patients (ex Thalassemia)

This investigation cannot be performed without a recommendation from the cardiologist.

For a better interaction with patients and their preparation, being a complex investigation, at Emerald you can find out more details about the investigation from a dedicated person:

SPECIFICATION (FAQ):

Cardiac MRI = Cardiac MRI = CARDIO- MRI = Heart MRI = Cardiovascular MRI = Cardiac MRI = Cardiac MRI, but the correct medical formula is Cardiac MRI or CARDIO-MRI.
