Aims and objectives

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) has become an important diagnostic imaging modality in cardiovascular medicine. 3T MRI scanners provide a wide range of cardiovascular imaging applications, but advantages and disadvantages must be considered. A 3T system, with its inherent high SNR, high resonance frequencies and longer T1, offers opportunities to improve the quality of cardiovascular MR imaging. Despite the advantages of this technique, numerous artefacts are frequently encountered, so cardiac imaging requires specific challenges with respect to cardiac motion. These challenges need an understanding of the relevant physics to optimize the sequences. This study aims to investigate quality assessment of the Cardiac Magnetic Resonance exams at 3T compared to 1.5T.
