Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging are increasingly important adjuncts to echocardiography for the evaluation of mitral valve disease. The mitral valve may be involved in various acquired or congenital conditions with resultant regurgitation or stenosis, and many of these conditions can be identified with CT or MR imaging. In addition, CT is useful for detecting and monitoring postoperative complications after mitral valve repair or replacement. As the use of CT and MR imaging increases, awareness of the CT and MR imaging appearances of the normal mitral valve and the various disease processes that affect it may foster recognition of unsuspected mitral disease in patients undergoing imaging for other purposes.
