The use of stress perfusion-cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging remains limited in patients with implantable devices. The primary goal of the study was to assess the safety, image quality, and the diagnostic value of stress perfusion-CMR in patients with MR-conditional transvenous permanent pacemakers (PPM) or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD).
What is the resulting gap?
Even if stress perfusion CMR plays an increasingly important role in ischemia detection with class I, level A, and class IIa recommendations in the current European and US guidelines its application has been investigated only in a few series of patients implanted with MR-conditional devices so that these patients are usually referred to other stress test methods.
