Slice Imaging technology progress allows a good approach of coronary arteries. MRI and Multislice Computed Tomography (MSCT) are in competition. Inspite of important progress, MRI of coronary artery disease remains "disappointing". With this imaging technology, there is a good plaque burden and myocardium visualisation. MST, and particularly with 16 slice technology, allows a good coronary stenosis identification. This technology enables soft plaque and myocardial ischemia detection. It is now possible to detect coronary heart disease with MSCT, which can replace or help a coronary angiogram in some indications.
