Using MRI to Aid Surgical Timing Decisions in RHD (MASTD-RHD)
Investigators: Alex Brown, Ben Costello, Gavin Wheaton, Peter Psaltis, Ross Roberts-Thompson, Stephen Nicholls, Viji Thomson.
Aims: This project aims to investigate whether Cardiac MRI can predict the need for surgery better than echocardiography in RHD patients with asymptomatic mitral stenosis, mitral regurgitation, or mixed mitral valve disease.
Timelines: Baseline data collection to be completed by November 2017; first year outcomes by November 2018.
