What is a cardiac MRI scan?
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. It allows you to take pictures of your body by using a strong magnetic field and radio frequency pulses. A cardiac MRI scan produces images of the heart muscle and valves and is used to assess both its structure and function.
A cardiac MRI is used to diagnose a wide range of heart conditions, including congenital heart disease, heart valve disease, and cardiac tumours. MRI scanning is widely performed, and unlike X-Ray does not use ionising radiation and therefore is not harmful.
What can a Cardiac MRI scan show?
- Assess the structure and function of your heart chambers, valves, and major blood vessels.
- Diagnose cardiovascular problems such as cancers, tumours and inflammatory conditions.
- Detect the blockage of blood vessels and plaque build-up.
Image slices are taken during the scan while the MRI moves across three planes:
- Sagittal - From side to side
- Axial - From top to bottom
- Coronal - From front to back

A cardiac MRI scan can diagnose a variety of conditions related to the heart, including:
Heart valve abnormalities
