"Cardiovascular MRI: Introduction and Indications" by Joseph J. Blake, M.D

May 13, 2015

Indications for cardiac MRI studies performed at Kettering includes:

  • Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD)
  • Cardiac mass
  • Tricuspid regurgitation
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Myopericarditis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Ventricular aneurysm
  • Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy (HOCM).

The advantage of MRI is that detailed functional information can be obtained at the same time as tissue characterization, while avoiding ionizing radiation. Information about myocardial scar, infiltrative disease, and acute inflammation can be gathered from these studies at the same time as extremely accurate information about volumes and morphology.

Utilizing Siemens MRI systems, which arguably produce the finest cardiac MRI studies available, KNRI is proud to team up with the knowledgeable, conscientious MRI technologists at KHN to offer the region’s finest diagnostic cardiovascular MRI service.
