Abstract

Heart failure is a common syndrome with multiple causes. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), using the available range of techniques, is establishing itself as the gold standard non-invasive test for determining the underlying causes, and adding prognostic value, guiding therapy. Progress is continuing and rapid, with promising new techniques such as diffuse fibrosis assessment. This article discusses the diverse roles of CMR in heart failure.
