Using Routine Cardiac MRI vs. Echocardiography (with Selective MRI) in Nonischemic Heart Failure

Viernes, Junio 5, 2020

Routine MRI doesn’t improve diagnostic specificity or patient outcomes.

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is increasingly used to assess structure and function. In cardiomyopathy, CMR is used to assess patients for evidence of infiltration or inflammation; late gadolinium enhancement, a common finding in cardiomyopathies, has prognostic implications. These investigators assessed routine CMR versus echocardiography with selective use of CMR in patients with newly diagnosed or worsening heart failure (HF).
