Conventional x-ray angiography is presently the gold standard for detecting coronary artery disease. This is a highly invasive procedure with a risk of developing potentially serious complications in addition to its drawback of exposure to ionizing radiation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a noninvasive method with no known adverse effects, offers exciting possibilities with its ability to acquire true three-dimensional (3D) volume information, image double oblique tomographic planes in the… CONTINUE READING
