Cardiac MRI


Dikteon MRI Center is a pioneer in the field of imaging Cardiology. The MRI Cardiac Department has been operating since 01/06/2021.

Our scientific team consists of Cardiologists specializing in this field, recognized Internationally but also by the European Heart Magnetic Resonance:

Dr. Thrasos Konstantinides and Dr. Grigoris Hadjiantoni.

Cardiac MRI

Is one of the most modern diagnostic techniques in cardiology, which has a documented role in both the diagnosis, as well as the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

At Dikteon MRI Center, we provide high quality images, with advanced techniques for the detection and evaluation of the entire spectrum of cardiovascular diseases.

The analysis is performed in the most advanced software system CVI42, of the Circle Cadiovascular Imaging Company, allowing for the complete evaluation of each case.

What are the main indications for Cardiac MRI?

Inflammatory diseases of the myocardium. Diagnosis and re-examination.

Cardiomyopathies in storable diseases (Fabry, amyloidosis).

Restrictive cardiomyopathy. Accurate study of myocardial deformity

Evaluation of myocardial vitality and decision to perform coronary angiography

Dilated heart disease to evaluate its functionality of the left and right ventricles (reasons for infarction or damage).

Dilated heart disease to assess functionality (reasons for arrhythmia risk – examination of first degree relative)

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Assessment of arythmia.

Toxic cardiomyopathy. Diagnostis and retesting in patients undergoing or after chemotherapy

Pericardiac diseases. Evaluation of inflammatory disease, detection of cysts or pericardial tumors.

Congenital heart disease in children, adolescents and adults for diagnosis, monitoring and guidance of rehabilitation therapy.

During the examination, after doctor’s instructions, as well as our technologists, the patient should hold their breath for some short time lapses. After the first images are obtained, IV contrast is administered. In this way, the perfusion of the walls of the heart is assessed through redistribution of blood flow. Delayed signal amplification (LGE) sequences are then obtained, that allow us to determine the possible presence and/or extent of the myocardial scar or fibrosis sites.
The patient should not have received coffee, chocolate, babanas, black tea and energy drinks, for at least 24 hours before the examination.
The examination takes about 40-60 minutes in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
