Cardiovascular magnetic resonance is able to provide a comprehensive assessment of valvular and hemodynamic function, including quantification of valve regurgitation and other flows, and accurate cardiac volumes and mass for assessing the effect on both ventricles. Combined with the ability to image all areas of the heart (including difficult areas, such as the right ventricle and pulmonary veins), it is an ideal technique for investigating patients who have heart failure in whom these areas need to be examined.
