Comparative assessment of right ventricular volumes and ejection fraction by thermodilution and magnetic resonance imaging in dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

Measurements of right ventricular (RV) ejection fraction (EF) and volumes using a new thermodilution technique were compared to serially performed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 21 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. For RVEF (%) and RV volume indices (ml/m2) the following correlation coefficients were found: RVEF r = 0.82; end-diastolic volume index… (More)
