Incremenal Value of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance for Assessing Pulmonic Valve Regurgitation

Journal Article (Journal Article)

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the 'gold standard' for quantifying pulmonic regurgitation (PR) in adults with congenital heart disease, but remains costly and is less readily available than echocardiography. Qualitative echocardiographic assessment of PR is challenging, and guiding criteria are limited. It is unknown if echocardiography is sufficient to screen for significant PR. The study aim was to determine whether cardiac MRI provides additional benefit in the assessment of PR in adults with congenital heart disease.
