Educational Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to
Describe the methodological basis of ultrafast/real-time cine MR techniques;
Describe ultrafast black blood imaging and explain its potential clinical role;
Explain the physiologic basis of and methods for myocardial perfusion and pharmacologic stress imaging to detect ischemic coronary disease;
