The right ventricle has long been the 'forgotten ventricle', as it is difficult to image owing to its complex morphology, its thin wall with coarse trabeculations, and its anterior position within the chest. Developments in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and echocardiography have provided new insights into right ventricular (RV) structure and function. RV performance seems to be an important determinant of clinical status and long-term outcome in patients with pulmonary hypertension… CONTINUE READING
