MRI of atherosclerosis is being applied in all major arteries in humans, aiming to identify key factors linked with current or future cardiovascular events, as well as for monitoring lesion progression/regression under medical treatment and for clinical diagnosis. This lecture will review the extensive technical advances of MRI atherosclerosis and the new insights into high risk lesions provided by MRI.
