A short-axis cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging cine image (TrueFISP by Siemens) acquired at a mid-ventricular slice position in early diastole in a patient with PH. The right ventricle (RV) is dilated, hypertrophied and trabeculated and the interventricular septum (blue arrow) is displaced towards the left ventricle (LV) during this phase of the cardiac cycle.
