MRI has an increasing role in the diagnosis of three important causes of acute chest pain: (1) acute pulmonary embolism, (2) acute aortic syndrome, and (3) acute ischemic heart disease. This educational exhibit will review the indications for performing MRI, the MRI sequences used, and MRI findings for each of these life-threatening diagnoses.
