Assessing RV function is complex, particularly in patients with RV dysfunction. Traditional indices, such as RV volumes and ejection fraction, incompletely describe the alterations that occur with changes in RV volume or afterload. New CMR methods of assessing RV efficiency based on strain and energetics have the potential to detect dysfunction earlier than currently used approaches.
