Comprehensive study of routine clinical use of cardiac MRI in a district general hospital setting

George Abraham, Aamir Shamsi, Yousef Daryani

Abstract

Introduction The European cardiovascular magnetic resonance (EuroCMR) registry1,2 was a multi-national, multi-centre report on the clinical use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) based on data up to 2012 including 27,000 patients. We have collected similar data on 791 consecutive patients based on the use of CMR in our local centre in Epsom, Surrey, UK, from the start of the service until the current time, encompassing a three-year period. This includes information on patient demographics, clinical safety, indications and impact on patient management. The aim of this study was to evaluate if the results of the multi-national European

Contemporary coronary imaging from patient to plaque: part 4 magnetic resonance imaging

Alistair C Lindsay, Scott W Murray, Robin P Choudhury

Abstract

Background: carotid/vascular MRI Figure 1. 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of atherosclerotic plaque in a right common carotid artery. The vessel wall is lined with complicated, lipid-rich plaque, which has a necrotic core (solid arrow). A thin fibrous cap can be seen in the bottom-left of the image (dashed arrow) Magnetic resonance arteriography (MRA) has for many years been used as a non-invasive means of producing an arterial lumenogram, an image of flow down the arterial lumen, from which the presence of significant stenosis could often be detected, if needed, by comparison to the comparatively normal flow in the contralateral vessel.
