Table 1 Overview of RV Stroke Volume (SV) results displayed for study, observer and slice orientation in comparison to main pulmonary artery (MPA) flow volumes. Data presented per scan is based on the number of available MPA PC flow reference data without trigger errors (Scan 1/n = 17; Scan 2/n = 18; see Methods for details)
