There is growing evidnence that dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MR imaging measurements relate to invasive haemodynamics and have clinical utility in the assessment of patients with pulmonary hypertension. This study develops the role of DCE MR imaging in this patient group identifying independent associations with key prognostic indicators such as right ventricular characteristics and invasive haemodynamics measurements.
