Purpose: To evaluate pulmonary hypertension (PH) determination by dual-phase dual-energy CT pulmonary angiography vascular enhancement and perfused blood volume (PBV) quantification.
Materials And Methods: In this prospective study, consecutive participants who underwent both right heart catheterization and dual-phase dual-energy CT pulmonary angiography were included between 2012 and 2014. CT evaluation comprised a standard pulmonary arterial phase dual-energy CT pulmonary angiography acquisition (termed series 1) followed 7 seconds after series 1 completion by a second dual-energy CT pulmonary angiography acquisition limited to the central 10 cm of the pulmonary vasculature (termed series 2).
