To review emerging techniques in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and their clinical applications with a special emphasis on new technologies, recent trials, and updated guidelines. The utility of CMR has expanded with the development of new MR sequences, postprocessing techniques, and artificial intelligence-based technologies, which have substantially increased the spectrum, quality, and reliability of information that can be obtained by CMR. The CMR modality has become an

Its role has been further strengthened by recent trials and guidelines. Quantitative mapping techniques are increasingly used for tissue characterization and detection of diffuse myocardial changes including myocardial storage diseases. With state-of-the-art CMR sequences, postprocessing techniques and understanding of their interpretation, CMR makes invaluable contributions to provide state-of-the-art diagnostics and care for cardiac patients in a multidisciplinary team.
