Abstract

The purpose of this article is to review the current state of stress CMR for both detection of significant disease and the prognostication of future cardiac events. Clinical data will demonstrate that stress CMR is accurate, with detection in a broad population of patients similar to or better than reported using other noninvasive stress imaging techniques. Moreover, patients with a normal adenosine stress CMR scan have an excellent prognosis on follow-up with no adverse cardiovascular outcomes. Thus, CMR perfusion stress testing has been deemed appropriate for the evaluation of chest pain syndromes in patients with intermediate probability of coronary artery disease (CAD) and for ascertaining the physiologic significance of indeterminate coronary artery lesions.
