Cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is an essential method for visualization of myocardial ischemia and infarction. The modality provides information on the extent and stage of infarction, regional and global myocardial function, and physiologic status by showing myocardial perfusion and tissue characterization. Complications from myocardial infarction, such as aneurysm formation, thrombus formation, wall rupture, and ischemic mitral valve regurgitation can be detected using MR. MR imaging (MRI) can also be used to detect inducible ischemia. The purpose of this chapter is to present case studies of different clinical scenarios of myocardial ischemia and infarction, suggest recommended imaging protocols, and provide examples of their appearance on cardiac MR images.
