Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is a noninvasive procedure that creates detailed images of the heart's chambers, valves, and vessels.
CMR provides images of the entire heart that are unprecedented in accuracy. This level of detail helps our cardiologists personalize the best treatment plan for each patient based on both the extent and the cause of their heart failure.
Mount Sinai Heart uses MRI equipment with ratings of 1.5 and 3.0 Teslas. This means they produce magnetic fields many times stronger than the Earth's. More Teslas means higher image resolution, which in turn provides greater diagnostic capability. Mount Sinai is one of the few facilities in the world capable of performing heart imaging at 3.0 Teslas.
