X-Ray coronary angiography (XRA) remains the gold standard for assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) although has associated clinical risk and financial cost. Coronary artery magnetic resonance angiography (CMRA) requires effective fat suppression as the epicardial vessels are embedded within fat. The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic performance of non-contrast enhanced whole-heart two-point Dixon multi-echo fat-water separation coronary angiography at 3T in patients with suspected CAD.
