Abstract: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance is a non-invasive 3-dimensional imaging technique which can provide morphologic and functional information as well as tissue characterization without the use of ionizing radiation or nephrotoxic contrast agents. It has a high accuracy and reproducibility and is optimally suited to quantify structural and functional abnormalities and to follow a patient over time. In the setting of heart failure with normal ejection fraction it can be used as an alternative to echocardiography in those patients with suboptimal image quality but it can also provide unique information for the differential diagnosis and the underlying physiopathology of this syndrome.
