Abstract

Noninvasive imaging modalities are often used to manage patients with cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is increasingly used for diagnosing and evaluating myocardial ischemia and viability; moreover, stress CMR study results can be used to determine cardiac prognosis. In this article, we review recently published material regarding the performance of stress testing with CMR including a brief update regarding techniques, stress agents, diagnostic accuracy, prognosis, economic implications, and ongoing trials and future developments.
