Over the past decade, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has undergone significant advancement in terms of imaging capabilities, ease of use, and speed of acquisition. A study of cardiac anatomy, function, and viability can now be completed in less than 30min with superb image quality and excellent reproducibility. This has led to widespread adoption of CMR in clinical practice. New CMR specialists and dedicated CMR units are rapidly emerging. The interventional cardiologist can now use CMR to find answers to many common clinical questions (e.g. inducible ischaemia, viability, coronary artery disease versus non-coronary causes of chest pain, etc.). Moreover, with the development of combined CMR-interventional units, interventional cardiologists are becoming an integral component of this evolving technology.
