Novel Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Measures in the Assessment and Follow-up of Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension (PH)

2019-09-19 03:56:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.

A prostaglandin that is a powerful vasodilator and inhibits platelet aggregation. It is biosynthesized enzymatically from PROSTAGLANDIN ENDOPEROXIDES in human vascular tissue. The sodium salt has been also used to treat primary pulmonary hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PULMONARY).

A multisystemic disorder characterized by a sensorimotor polyneuropathy (POLYNEUROPATHIES), organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and pigmentary skin changes. Other clinical features which may be present include EDEMA; CACHEXIA; microangiopathic glomerulopathy; pulmonary hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PULMONARY); cutaneous necrosis; THROMBOCYTOSIS; and POLYCYTHEMIA. This disorder is frequently associated with osteosclerotic myeloma. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1335; Rev Med Interne 1997;18(7):553-62)

A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
