The aim is to compare a compiled clinical routine cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging protocol performed at both 1.5 and 3 T in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing coronary X-ray angiography. CMR including adenosine perfusion and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) at 1.5 T has been established for noninvasive detection of relevant CAD. However, little is known about the potential advantages of 3 T to detect CAD. Fifty-two evaluable patients (62.3 ± 10.2 years… CONTINUE READING
