Purpose: The current literature reports a wide range of diagnostic accuracy of non-contrast magnetic resonance coronary angiography (NC-MRCA) for the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to compare the clinical effectiveness of NC-MRCA with that of invasive coronary angiography (ICA) in patients with suspected CAD using a systematic review and meta-analysis.
