[Abstract] Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) offers the advantages of multi-parameter and multi-sequence imaging. It has achieved "one-stop" examination on cardiac morphology, function, histology, perfusion, blood flow and the like, thus being regarded as an indispensable noninvasive imaging test for diagnosis and treatment of multiple cardiovascular diseases. In this review, we will briefly review the progress of CMR technology such as T1 mapping and feature tracking in 2022. We will then focus on the clinical application in diagnosis and differentiation, treatment and prognosis of various cardiovascular disease including ischemic heart disease, non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, heart failure and so on. We hope that this article can provide domestic professionals with assistance in clinical application and scientific research.
