Abstract

Cardiac MRI (CMR) is a noninvasive diagnostic tool with comprehensive capabilities similar to that of two-dimensional echocardiography with Doppler. In addition to the ability to evaluate the etiology and severity of pulmonary valve regurgitation (PR), CMR is well designed to serially monitor the impact of the PR on the right ventricle (RV). Importantly, RV dilation and dysfunction is a critical determinate to time surgical intervention. CMR gives the silent RV, suffering from PR, a voice.
