Cardiac MRI

Non-invasive cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) creates images of the heart using radio waves and use of special magnets. It does not require any tracer chemicals (and may be performed without injected dyes), and so an MRI may be a safer option for people with certain medical conditions. Temple cardiologists use MRI scans to diagnose problems with the heart’s muscle, valves, and coronary arteries. Because it can create moving images, MRI is especially useful for evaluating heart muscle function in real time.
