Different magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques have been developed over the past 25 years for measuring heart mechanics and assessing regional cardiac function. These techniques include cine, tagging, and different magnitude- and phase-based motion-encoding techniques. Together with recent advances in techniques for revealing the myocardial structure-function relationship and its intrinsic mechanical properties, these advances provide different types of images that need special postprocessing and analysis algorithms to efficiently extract accurate and meaningful information about the heart function. This presentation provides an overview of different technical developments in the field as well as key clinical applications.
