Cardiac MRI

What is Cardiac MRI?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radiofrequency waves and a strong magnetic field to create detailed images from inside the body.  The images we are able to create give us vital information for understanding and treating your child’s heart condition.

What makes MRI so useful?

  • MRI allows us to see clearly inside the chest wall without having to use catheters or expose children to radiation.
  • With cardiac MRI, we are able to examine the heart’s structures in clear detail, as well as how each part is working, including volume and speed of blood flow.
