Scripps Clinic Cardiac MRI Program
The Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at Scripps Green Hospital plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiovascular conditions. The program is part of the Scripps Clinic Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, which is staffed by a team of nationally-renowned cardiologists committed to exceptional patient care and leading edge cardiac research.
Physicians in the cardiac MRI program are specially trained to use MRI technology for capturing three-dimensional videos of the heart, allowing the highest level of detail in evaluating heart structure and function. A wide variety of disorders can be evaluated through cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, such as scarring from previous heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), congestive heart failure (poor heart muscle function), cardiac tumors, abnormal heart valves and structural abnormalities due to congenital heart disease.
