  Purpose

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.

    Other: Diagnostic Cardiac Imaging
    Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) offers superior image quality compared to echocardiography and nuclear imaging, and the ability to image both function and perfusion. Combining the superior image quality of CMR with the diagnostic information provided by exercise stress could result in a new, more accurate modality for diagnosing and evaluating coronary artery disease. This project is expected to show that CMR is at least equivalent to nuclear stress imaging and could potentially replace it in many instances, eliminating the need for radioisotope administration and the associated exposure of patients to ionizing radiation.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • any patient referred for stress SPECT
  • known or suspected ischemic heart disease
  • ability to perform adequate treadmill stress

Exclusion Criteria:

  • any contraindication to MRI (e.g. ferromagnetic foreign body, cerebral aneurysm clip, pacemaker/ICD, severe claustrophobia)
  • renal insufficiency (GFR <40)
  • known allergy to gadolinium-based contrast or iodinated contrast (because of the research CTA in patients not referred for cath after 2 weeks)
