MR Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
MR MPI is one of the best non-invasive test that allows us to assess the presence of myocardial ischemia (lack of oxygen in the heart muscle) and myocardial infarction (death of the heart muscle tissue) as a result of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). It also assesses the heart function, the blood flow of the heart and the valves. Typically, this test is done by giving intravenous adenosine infusion (medication to stress the heart muscle). The findings from this test will help your doctor to determine if coronary artery revascularization (coronary artery stenting or coronary artery bypass grafting surgery) is needed.
MRI uses very powerful magnets and radio frequency pulses to create images within the cardiovascular system. It does not involve any ionizing radiation. MRI Heart is also useful to assess heart failure and suspected cardiomyopathies (heart muscle disease) or valvular abnormalities.
