    • ...Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a non-invasive modality for evaluating pulmonary hypertension by evaluation of left and right systolic and diastolic function as well as by quantification of pulmonary artery distensibility and pulmonary flow dynamics [6-10]...
    • ...CMR measured pulmonary flow dynamics are altered in acute PE as well as in pulmonary hypertension, and have been shown to correlate closely with invasive assessment of cardiac hemodynamic function and clinical outcome in patients with pulmonary hypertension [6-10]...
    • ...for pulmonary hypertension, even in early or mild clinical stages [9,10]...
    • ...Furthermore, since the hemodynamics of the pulmonary artery are restored after 6 months of treatment for acute PE, and patients with CTEPH have a clearly different flow profile [6-10], CMR may be able to distinguish patients with clinical relevant pulmonary hypertension from those who are fully recovered, although the design and the number of cases with pulmonary hypertension in our study does not allow to access the value of CMR as a ...
    • ...even when pulmonary hypertension is detectable only with exercise and before overt pressure elevations occur at rest [10]...
