Magnetic resonance imaging has been demonstrated to be useful in the assessment of aortic and pericardial disease, cardiac masses, and congenital heart disease. Recently, developments in rapid imaging, assessment of regional function, evaluation of intracardiac shunts and valvular regurgitation, and magnetic resonance coronary angiography have been achieved, indicating an increasing role for magnetic resonance techniques in clinical cardiology.
