About this Research Topic
In this research topic, we will highlight the potential usefulness and clinical relevance of non-invasive
and invasive cardiovascular imaging techniques such as echocardiography, cardiac CT; cardiovascular
magnetic resonance (CMR) and catheterization in patients with valvular heart disease at different
severity stages. Deep phenotyping, appropriate data handling and application of new algorithms will
further increase our understanding of valvular heart diseases and the interaction with short- and
long-term myocardial structural and functional changes. Specifically, this issue will address the clinical
and prognostic relevance of new imaging methods or proposed new diagnostic indices, parameters,
or algorithms in patients with various valvular heart diseases.
We are looking forward to receiving your contribution being it as an original research article, a review
article, a meta-analysis article, a systematic-review article, or a clinical trial or study design article.
