Cardiovascular MRI

Covering cardiac anatomy, function, and myocardial tissue characterization, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a powerful tool which offers both diagnostic and prognostic insight into many complex cardiac conditions.  With innovative applications supporting highly accelerated, free-breathing exams, patients prone to susceptibility artifacts, and ECG “lead-free” scans, Siemens Healthineers is working to bring the benefits of CMR to a broad range of patients.

Cardiac applications


Enables high-quality diagnostic imaging, even in patients with arrhythmias and those who cannot hold their breath.

The Compressed Sensing segmented technique supports high spatial and temporal resolution with very short breath-holds. The Compressed Sensing real-time technique enables high-quality diagnostic imaging in free-breathing. These techniques can dramatically speed up cardiac scans, increase efficiency and expand the patient population eligible for Cardiac MRI.


Enables pixel-based quantitation of myocardial tissue for the differential diagnosis of myocardial disease.

Used together with HeartFreeze, our motion correction algorithm, MyoMaps supports the inline generation of T1, T2 and T2* colored parametric maps. MyoMaps helps distinguish between various myocardial pathologies, e.g. detecting myocardial inflammation (T1 Map); depicting cardiac edema (T2 Map); and improving early detection of iron overload (T2* Map)

Available on BioMatrix systems, PSIR HeartFreeze2 with motion compensation algorithms enables high-resolution imaging in free-breathing for viability assessment, even in patients with arrhythmias and those who cannot hold their breat

High Bandwidth Inversion Recovery

Our new high bandwidth sequence extends the benefits of CMR exams to patients prone to susceptibility artefacts.

The myExam Cardiac Assist harnesses our unique standardization and automation technology to make cardiac scans faster and more robust.

Enables a comprehensive Cardiac MR examination in less than 30 minutes.

This Siemens-unique myExam Cardiac Assist is a highly automated tool to help plan and execute CMR examinations. Using AI-powered algorithms such as AutoAlign, myExam Cardiac Assist enables automatic planning of all cardiac views for standardized, reproducible cardiac scans. Step-by-step guidance takes the complexity out of cardiac exams and contributes to speed and efficiency.

Enables acquiring optimally timed contrast images with interactive bolus timing.

Achieve consistent contrast agent timing with every Angio examination. Deliver clear answers to your referring physicians, read and report MR Angio cases performed consistently with optimized kinetic timing.

Enables a completely new, non-contrast MR Angiography technique.
QISS aids in improving patient safety and compliance for higher accuracy3 and better disease management, while maintaining the diagnostic certainty you need in peripheral MRA exams.
