Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) is expected to be increasingly used in Korea due to technological advances and the expanded national insurance coverage of CMR assessments. For improved patient care, proper acquisition of CMR images as well as their accurate interpretation by well-trained personnel are equally important. In response to the increased demand for CMR, the Korean Society of Cardiovascular Imaging (KOSCI) has issued interpretation guidelines in conjunction with the Korean Society of Radiology. KOSCI has also created a formal Committee on CMR guidelines to create updated practices. The members of this committee review previously published interpretation guidelines and discuss the patterns of CMR use in Korea.
