The present investigators describe the results of magnetic resonance angiography and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in vasculitis patients asymptomatic for cardiovascular disease. The results indicate that coronary artery abnormalities are frequently identified by magnetic resonance imaging in patients with systemic necrotizing vasculitis.

    Background: Coronary sinus (CS) flow in response to a provocative stress has been used as a surrogate measure of coronary flow reserve, and velocity-encoded cine (VEC) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an established technique for measuring CS flow. In this study, the cold pressor test (CPT)...
