The process of “protocoling” a cardiac magnetic resonance imaging examination-determining which imaging protocol, or variant thereof, a patient requires-can be confusing to the novice. The purpose of this chapter is to describe 6 specific cardiac imaging modules, to describe the pulse sequences that make up each module, and to demonstrate how these modules can be combined to generate imaging protocols for specific cardiac imaging indications. The 6 modules discussed in this chapter are given descriptive names that indicate the specific application: localizer, late gadolinium enhancement/viability, perfusion, tissue characterization, vascular flow, and structure and function modules. The protocols provided in this chapter are by no means definitive but instead cover the more common indications for cardiac MR imaging. These modules and protocols can be adapted to the specific needs of each reader’s practice.
