Established in 1995 as the second such center in the United States, the BIDMC Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) Center is dedicated to the development and clinical application of CMR applications to the cardiovascular system. These include the use of CMR for the assessment of biventricular function/volumes/mass, valvular function, myocardial viability/infarction, coronary artery integrity and detection of subclinical atherosclerosis.
The CMR Center is also committed to the education and training of researchers and clinicians in the field. Funding for the center is provided by grants from the NIH/NHLBI/NIBIB, the American Heart Association, industry, private foundations, and individual contributions.
