MR imaging cardiac quantitation is accurate, highly reproducible, and feasible using equipment available in most hospitals. For determination of myocardial mass, evaluation of RV function, and quantitative measurements of flow in the great vessels and peripheral vasculature, MR imaging is the reference method. Availability of methods for rapid scanning and analysis will lead to increased use of cardiac MR imaging in quantifying cardiac function.
