Diastolic dysfunction is the primary cause of CHF in 40-60% of patients with heart failure in the United States and has been shown to lead to poor outcomes. Early diagnosis and treatment of the causes of diastolic dysfunction is effective in relieving symptoms and reducing mortality. The non- invasive methods which can be used to assess diastolic function include cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. The purpose of this educational poster is to describe the CMR techniques which can be used to evaluate diastolic function and review the CMR findings of this disorder.
