What is cardiac MRI?

Consultant cardiologist Joban Sehmi reveals whether a cardiac MRI scan hurts

A cardiac MRI is a very specialist test to assess the structures within the heart.

Not only does a cardiac MRI allow us to visualize the anatomy of the heart, but it also allows us to assess the function of the heart and the tissues within the heart.

The cardiac MRI involves a very powerful magnet and radio waves, and these are used in combination to generate very detailed, high-definition models of the heart.
