Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) technology has advanced significantly over the past two decades, and the modality is now being used routinely in radiological investigations. CMR is frequently referred to a 'one-stop shop' for diagnosis as it provides more combined information about cardiac viability, morphology and function than any other imaging modality.
This paper describes the basic principles of CMR and outlines a standard CMR investigation. This is followed by an overview of the variety of established CMR capabilities available.
