    Abstract:

    Background Pulmonary artery distensibility and pulsatility has been studied in patients with COPD using cardiac MRI (CMRI). 1 However, pulmonary artery pulse wave velocity (PA-PWV) using the ‘QA’method 2 in CMRI has not been studied in this population. We hypothesised that patients with COPD have a higher PA-PWV compared to healthy ind...More
