Exercise Stress CMR Comparison Study
This study is being done to compare standard nuclear exercise stress testing to exercise stress magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The investigators have successfully shown that exercise MRI works well in healthy volunteers, and the next step is to test if it works as well as nuclear stress testing in patients with known or suspected heart disease.
MRIs offers superior image quality compared to echocardiography and nuclear imaging, and have the ability to image both function and perfusion. Combining the superior image quality of Cardiac MRI with the diagnostic information provided by exercise stress could result in a new, more accurate modality for diagnosing and evaluating coronary artery disease.
