Рurpose.Recent studies on the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, the improvement in diagnostics and imaging methods, have brought magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) to the forefront in the vis-ualization of atherosclerotic lesions. MRI is developing and becoming the most important di-agnostic method for both imaging of arterial wall and lumen and depiction of atherosclerotic plaques of aorta and large arteries. This review summarizes advanced approaches to the im-aging diagnosis of atherosclerosis with their limitations and promotes the role of MRI in the diagnosis of atherosclerotic aortic disease.
