Abstract

Right heart and pulmonary circulation disorders are generally caused by right ventricle (RV) pressure overload, volume overload, and cardiomyopathy, and they are associated with distinct clinical courses and therapeutic approaches, although they often may coexist. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) provides a noninvasive accurate and reproducible multiplanar anatomic and functional assessment, tissue characterization, and blood flow evaluation of the right heart and pulmonary circulation. This article reviews the current status of the CMR, the most recent techniques, the new parameters and their clinical utility in diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic management in the right heart and pulmonary circulation disorders.
