An MRI is a non invasive medical test that allows radiologists to diagnose coronary artery disease and other heart problems. Some of the common uses of a heart MRI include:
- Evaluate symptoms of coronary artery disease, such as blood flow to the heart
- Evaluate scarring caused from a heart attack
- Diagnosing inflammatory conditions of the heart
- Diagnosing cardiovascular tumors
- Diagnosing cardiovascular infections
- Evaluating the anatomy of the heart chambers, valves and blood flow through vessels.
- Planning treatment for heart disease
An MRI can also be used to detect prostate cancer. A prostate MRI uses radiofrequency to create detailed images of the prostate gland and surrounding tissues.
