Recent Findings: Technical advances in tissue mapping techniques enable a virtual histopathological perspective to detect myocardial disease processes, such as inflammation, infiltration, and fibrosis. Myocardial perfusion imaging enables separation between regional ischemia due to epicardial coronary artery disease (CAD) and microvascular disease. Finally, computation of aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) provides insight into the effects of the vascular stiffness on the efficiency of cardiac work.
Summary: A comprehensive CMR protocol enables identification of the underlying pathophysiology in patients with HFpEF, allows identification of important differential diagnoses in patients with specific diseases, and may lead to imaging-guided precision medicine in HFpEF.
