Magnetic resonance methods are widely applicable to research questions posed in translational cardiovascular studies. The main intent of this review was to offer the cardiovascular translational research scientist a "menu" of magnetic resonance (MR) approaches that can be applied to answering research questions posed in a variety of experimental situations including those involving the use of human subjects. Obviously, this menu is not comprehensive and many other topics could have been selected for emphasis. However, we hope that the material presented encompasses a broad enough slice of the field to stimulate thinking about the possible applications of MR methods to specific research questions.
