Featured article: Prognostic value of vasodilator stress perfusion CMR after inconclusive stress testing

Inconclusive stress test results in patients with suspected coronary artery disease are common.  In this 15th Gerald M. Pohost JCMR Award winning study by Pezel and colleagues, vasodilator stress CMR was found to provide good prognostic value to predict (6.5 year median followup) MACE in patients referred for CMR after an inconclusive non-CMR stress test.  CMR provided incremental prognostic valve over traditional risk factors.

Aims and scope

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) publishes high-quality articles on all aspects of basic, translational and clinical research on the design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) methods applied to the cardiovascular system. Topical areas include, but are not limited to:

  • New applications of magnetic resonance to improve the diagnostic strategies, risk stratification, characterization and management of diseases affecting the cardiovascular system.
  • New methods to enhance or accelerate image acquisition and data analysis.
  • Results of multicenter, or larger single-center studies that provide insight into the utility of CMR.
  • Basic biological perceptions derived by CMR methods.

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is the official publication of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR).

The mission of SCMR is to improve cardiovascular health by advancing the field of CMR through education, advocacy, networking, research and clinical excellence. The long term vision is that the expanded recognition and utilization of CMR will improve cardiovascular health and outcomes within the next 5 years.
