In this study, the non-contrast whole-heart coronary magnetic resonance angiography (NCE-CMRA) is used to evaluate the coronary artery damage in Kawasaki Disease (KD). The NCE-CMRA and ultrasound images of children with Kawasaki disease (KD) are retrospectively analyzed. Compared with echocardiography, the NCE-CMRA has its unique advantages in displaying coronary artery, such as high image resolution, good soft tissue contrast and strong signal to noise ratio. Furthermore, NCE-CMRA can clearly and directly show the damaged coronary artery. Therefore, it is a potential alternative to ultrasound for imaging of the coronary artery in children with KD.
