JCMR 2021; 23:40. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Accurately Detects Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease in Suspected Non-ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction: A Sub-analysis of the CARMENTA Trial (CME)

Description

Diagnosing non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) can be challenging. Early invasive coronary angiography (ICA) is generally considered a vital step but a sizeable proportion of patients are found not have obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). Nonetheless, MI with non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) is not uncommon. During this course the learner will gain insight into the diagnostic potential of using early cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with suspected NSTEMI in the current high-sensitivity troponin era.

Learning Objective

To close the gap outlined above, learners will need to understand the diagnostic potential of using early cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with suspected NSTEMI in the current high-sensitivity troponin era.
