Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) was first developed more than 40 years ago. Due to its high temporal and spatial resolution and exquisite tissue contrast, CMRI has become the gold standard for cardiac imaging, for providing quantitative cardiac function data, for assessing myocardial perfusion, and for characterising myocardial tissue using delayed-enhancement sequence as well as parametric mapping.

For the upcoming special issue titled "State-of-the-art reviews on cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging”, we invite world renowned experts to provide an update on the current and future use of CMRI in the management of cardiovascular disease.

Major topics will include myocardial viability, myocardial perfusion and blood flow, valvular heart disease, CMRI in electrophysiology, multiparametric mapping, COVID-19 and CMRI, non-ischaemic cardiomyopathy, myocardial strain assessment, and the assessment of myocardial fiber architecture using diffusion tensor MRI.
