    Cardiac MRI perfusion and viability imaging: Clinical value in cardiac care

    Summary:  Rest-stress perfusion and viability cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) tests are performed on a 60-year-old male with known coronary arterial atherosclerotic disease (CAD) (Figures 1-6). Previously, the patient sustained a right coronary artery (RCA) territory myocardial infarction (MI) and underwent successful RCA stent placement. No intervention was performed for left circumflex (LCX) 40% and first obtuse marginal (OM1) 50% stenoses. While the patient is currently asymptomatic, a recent surveillance echocardiography demonstrated worsening global left ventricular function with regional wall-motion abnormalities in the inferior and lateral walls.
