MRI- or combined x-ray and MRI (XMR)-guided catheterization was introduced as an alternative to x-ray-guided catheterization to reduce radiation exposure and offer more comprehensive anatomical, hemodynamic and physiological data. However, developments have been slow to come into routine clinical practice. We report a 10-year experience of solely MRI-guided and XMR catheterization in patients at our institution, review the developments in clinical MRI-guided and XMR catheterization and discuss future perspectives. This includes further results from our clinical trial on MRI-guided cardiac interventions.
