- Observed Mean (Std Err) for % Difference Between VMS and MRI. [ Time Frame: VMS occured on day 1 and required 15 minutes and MRI occurred on day 1 and required 1 hour. ]% Difference was measured for right ventricular EDV, ESV and EF.
- Inter-Observer Variability [ Time Frame: VMS occured on day 1 and required 15 minutes and MRI occurred on day 1 and required 1 hour. ]A VMS/echo inter-observer analysis of VMS between-Observer Variation for N=75 Studies.
- Intra-Observer Variability [ Time Frame: VMS occured on day 1 and required 15 minutes and MRI occurred on day 1 and required 1 hour. ]Intra-Observer Variation: Directional Difference within Observer (Reading 2-Reading 1)

Right ventrical volumn comparison
Single arm study comparing Ventripoint Medical System (VMS) right ventricle volume measurement to gold standard cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (cMRI) measurement in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.
Device: Ventripoint Medical System
The subjects will undergo a 2D echocardiography according to standard of care. An additional 5 - 10 minutes of scanning using VMS transducer attached to the echocardiography system to acquire images for 3-D reconstruction is required.
Within one day of the VMS image acquisition the subjects will also undergo cMRI according to hospital standards of care plus an additional 5 minutes to capture the PSSS required images.
The objective of this study is: The comparison of the VMS and MRI values for EDV, ESV, and EF using 75 subjects.
Secondary objectives are:
The determination of VMS inter-observer and intra-observer variability of these quantities using 30 subjects.
