Poster #13: Benjamin Orkild – The Role of Right Ventricular Shape in Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Rob MacLeod

Tricuspid valve regurgitation (TR) is a common heart valve dysfunction that allows blood flow from the right ventricle (RV) to the right atrium. If left untreated, TR can develop into deadly cardiomyopathies and heart failure. However, clinical imaging indicators of patients with emerging TR are lacking. The goal of this study was to use MRI imaging and statistical shape analysis to quantify RV shape changes linked to TR.
