Mean pulmonary arterial pressure estimation by high temporal resolution phase-contrast MR imaging in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) and correlation with simultaneous invasive pressure recordings – first results


Introduction Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a severe disease whose prevalence has been underestimated for a long time [1]. Cross-sectional imaging modalities like MR imaging or CT may establish the diagnosis. However, the mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) in the main pulmonary artery (MPA) as the most important parameter for… (More)
