Abstract

Cardiovascular MR (CMR) has an emerging role in the noninvasive diagnostic assessment of heart failure (HF). Different imaging sequences allow for a detailed assessment of cardiac morphology, function, myocardial perfusion, tissue characterization, and blood flow measurement. This article reviews the key applications of CMR in HF, with special focus on how CMR may influence the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of HF patients.
