  Cardiovascular MR: Technical Promises
Matthias Stuber
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of mortality in the western World. MR is non-invasive, safe, operates without ionizing radiation, provides a high soft tissue contrast, and informs about anatomy, flow, function, tissue properties, and metabolism. Therefore, MR is a powerful tool for the management of cardiovascular disease. However, to harvest its full potential, improved ease-of-use, reduced operator dependency, improved time efficiency, as well as accurate and precise quantitative information about anatomy, flow, function and tissue properties needs to be provided. With rapidly evolving technology, some of these above gaps can be bridged and selected solutions will be discussed.
