The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic performance of noncontrast-enhanced coronary MR angiography in the detection of clinical significant coronary artery stenosis by using CTA as a reference. The preliminary results indicate that the noncontrast-enhanced coronary MR angiography has an excellent consistency in evaluating coronary artery disease in comparison to CTA. Noncontrast-enhanced coronary MR angiography may be suitable as a screening tool for coronary artery disease.
