Overview

Cardiac MRI is becoming a gold standard in evaluating right heart structure and function.

MRI

Cardiac MRI is becoming a gold standard in evaluating right heart structure and function particularly in the following fields:

  • Complex congenital heart anomalies
  • Valvular regurgitation quantification
  • Inflammatory and infiltrative myocardial disease
  • Mediastinal mass impinging on the right chambers
  • Planning for a complex surgery or procedure
  • Research purposes[1][2]
