Anatomic imaging of the pulmonary arteries is limited by the invasive nature of the technique, the signal-to-noise ratio, or spatial resolution. Magnetic resonance pulmonary angiography using either 1.5T or, ideally, 3.0T magnets allows for serial studies to define the natural history of diseases that affect the pulmonary arteries, diagnostic-quality images for clinical decision making and eventually for defining the therapeutic locus of disease-modifying therapies. This presentation demonstrated serial high-resolution images of submassive pulmonary emboli, obtained before and after thrombolytic therapy, in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension and scleroderma-associated pulmonary hypertension and fibrosis.
