Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is an advanced imaging technique with many clinical applications in Cardiology. It offers a wealth of information regarding the function and structure of the heart and is increasingly being used for the diagnosis and management of heart diseases. CMR is safe for patients and does not involve ionising radiation.
