Abstract

Right heart chamber enlargement can be caused by a diverse and heterogeneous group of conditions with highly varied clinical symptoms and signs. An appreciation of the pathophysiology, causes, and imaging features of right heart enlargement is paramount in recognizing and potentially ameliorating the development of right heart dysfunction or adverse cardiac events. Chest x-ray and transthoracic echocardiography have traditionally been, and still are, the mainstay in initial evaluation of right heart dilatation; however, recent advances in both multidetector computed tomography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging now permit a comprehensive assessment of the causes and consequences of right heart dilatation.
