Read our disclaimer for details.
A prospective study of the use of two novel MRI techniques (oxygen-enhanced and fourier decomposition MRI) in the initial diagnosis and follow-up of patients with Pulmonary Hypertension. The investigators believe these techniques may present a novel set of imaging biomarkers that may be used for risk stratification, prediction of treatment response and longitudinal disease monitoring. The reserach MRI is in addition to standard of care and will not affect treatment decisions.
