Role of MRI in patient selection for CRT.

Author information

Department of Radiology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA.


Magnetic resonance imaging has great potential for aiding in the selection of patients who will respond to CRT. MRI is the only imaging tool that can simultaneously assess mechanical dyssynchrony, determine the amount and location of myocardial scar tissue, and map the location of cardiac venous anatomy-three important factors in predicting a patient's response to CRT. The goal of this manuscript is to review the MRI methods that can be used in the selection of patients for CRT.
