A comprehensive multi-imaging evaluation of the right heart structure, function, and pressures represents an essential step in the diagnostic and prognostic algorithm of patients with heart failure. Furthermore, it provides important information for detecting early signs of right ventricular unfavorable remodeling, and consequently, guiding appropriate therapeutic interventions.
