Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging and MR-conditional cardiac devices

Michael D. Eggen, Cory M. Swingen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides a condensed review of the basic principles of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and introduces the reader to some of the concepts and terminology necessary to understand the use of MRI to study the heart. We then proceed to describe a wide range of MRI cardiac applications, both in vivo and ex vivo, which should interest the biomedical engineer. While the capabilities of cardiac MRI are quite extensive, our choice of topics for this chapter is rather judicious, as cardiac MRI has evolved to the point where entire books are published on the subject.
