- •Even if open MR has a lower magnetic field compared to closed-bore MR, subjective image quality assessment does not favor one type of MR over the other.
- •When severe obesity or claustrophobia do not allow to perform cardiac MR on closed magnet, open cardiac MR provide a helpful alternative.
- •The performance of open cardiac MR appears substantially comparable to that of closed-bore MR in terms of diagnostic potential of images.
