Specifics of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in children

Abstract : This review points out three specific features of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in children: the small size of the heart modifies the usual balance between signal-to-noise ratio and spatial resolution; the higher and more variable heart rate limits tissue characterization and temporal resolution; and motion artefacts (notably respiratory motions) must be dealt with. In the second part of this review, we present the current and future practices of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in children, based on the experience of all French paediatric cardiac MRI centres.
