Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) affects over 65 million people worldwide and is the third leading cause of death in the US. The aim of this feasibility study was to employ 4D-flow MRI for the comprehensive assessment of the effects of COPD on right-sided hemodynamics. Measures of blood kinetic energy (KE) were used to quantify hemodynamic changes in COPD patients compared to controls. Findings showed a significant increase in KE in the right atrium across increasing categories of COPD severity. Right-sided 4D flow MRI maybe a promising tool for the detection of hemodynamic disruptions in COPD and other vasoconstrictive diseases.
