Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging enables noninvasive assessment of myocardial perfusion. However, standard 2D multi-slice CMR perfusion techniques only provide limited coverage and hence prohibit computation of myocardial ischemic burden. Recently, 3D CMR perfusion has proven highly diagnostic in two single-center studies. In this preliminary assessment of our multi-center study 3D CMR perfusion imaging proved highly diagnostic for the detection of functionally significant CAD as defined by FFR.
