Conclusion

3T CMR imaging improved the performance of several CMR sequences, in our experience particularly dynamic first-pass perfusion and delayed enhancement. Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) and Contrast-to-Noise Ratio (CNR) were better at 3T with an improved diagnostic value, especially in perfusion studies, to evaluate the decreased cardiac reserve.

Morpho-functional analysis did not offer significant benefits, particularly T2-weigheted images in patients with high BMI.

Finally, 3T automatic Cardiac Volumes measurements had minor reproducibility, especially for the right cardiac sections.
