Quantitative susceptibility testing is a fast, non-invasive, magnetic resonance imaging technique that depends on determination of magnetic susceptibility. However, QSM also helps in determining key cardiac disease indicators such as blood oxygenation and myocardial iron levels. Results from recent studies into cardiovascular QSM have shown the possibility of a non-invasive examination of blood oxygenation, myocardial iron content, and myocardial fiber orientation, as well as carotid plaque composition. Significant work is ongoing to address these difficulties and integrate the QSM algorithm into clinical practice in the cardiovascular field.
