Detection of right ventricular myocardial fibrosis using quantitative CT attenuation of the right ventricular myocardium in the late phase on 320 slice CT in subjects with pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract

PURPOSE Right ventricular myocardial (RVM) fibrosis may be a significant indicator of prognosis in pulmonary hypertension (PH). To detect the presence of RVM fibrosis in PH subjects, we employed ECG gated 320-slice CT. METHODS 62 confirmed PH subjects (16 males; 55±16years; 45 chronic thromboembolic PH (CTEPH) who underwent conventional non-surgical… (More)
