Stress perfusion CMR can provide both excellent diagnostic and important prognostic information in the context of a comprehensive assessment of cardiac anatomy and function. This coupled with the high spatial resolution, and the lack of both attenuation artefacts and ionising radiation, make CMR stress perfusion imaging a highly attractive stress imaging modality. It is now in routine use in many centres, and shows promise in evaluating patients with clinical problems beyond those of epicardial coronary disease.
