PMID:  17313648     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Measurements of left ventricular function with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) at rest and during intravenous dobutamine are useful for identifying myocardial ischemia, viability, and the risk of subsequent cardiovascular events. Without ionizing radiation, intravascular iodinated contrast administration, or acoustic window limitations, CMR has emerged as a useful adjunct to transthoracic echocardiography for assessing patients with or suspected of having coronary artery disease.
