Abstract

Echocardiography is currently the primary clinical method for the noninvasive measurement of right heart hemodynamic parameters and is an indispensable tool for the initial assessment, diagnosis, longitudinal follow-up, and prognostication of patients with abnormal right heart function. This review will discuss the echocardiographic methods used to estimate right heart hemodynamic parameters.
