Cardiac MRI (CMR) in this era is fast emerging as an invaluable tool in assessment of a large gamut of cardiac pathologies to not only ascertain the diagnosis but also assess severity, enable prognostication of disease process, guide management, and follow-up patients. CMR is today the gold standard for accurate and reproducible cardiac functional assessment, with excellent soft-tissue contrast, and ability to evaluate myocardial involvement even without contrast objectively via mapping techniques. CMR is thus fast emerging as the modality of choice and exponentially growing for cardiac assessment.
