ATS 2019, Dallas, TX -- Patients at greatest risk of dying from pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) may be identified through cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the information the noninvasive scan provides about the functional level of the heart's right ventricle, according to research presented at ATS 2019. Researchers said stratification of mortality risk in PAH can help doctors provide targeted therapies to those at greatest risk and measure their effectiveness by monitoring right ventricular function.
