Only a small subset of the many patients presenting with chest pain are eventually diagnosed with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Early identification of this high-risk group can be challenging, particularly since many will initially have non-diagnostic electrocardiograms and normal cardiac enzymes. There is, therefore, great clinical interest in new methods for better detection of ACS. A number of important recent studies using cardiacmagnetic resonance(CMR) aswell as new developments in CMR techniques have led to growing excitement over the possibility of using CMR to improve detection of ACS. This review will provide an overview of these developments and suggest possible uses of CMR for this indication.
