Perfusion-cardiovascular MR (CMR) imaging has been shown to reliably identify patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease (CAD), who are at risk for future cardiac events and thus, allows for guiding therapy including revascularizations. Accordingly, it is an ideal test to exclude prognostically relevant coronary artery disease. Several guidelines, such as the ESC guidelines, currently recommend CMR as non-invasive testing in patients with stable chest pain. CMR has as an advantage over the more conventional pathways as it lacks radiation and it potentially reduces costs.
