Pulmonary venous flow (PVF) provides incremental information on left ventricular (LV) diastolic function, and can support the diagnosis of severe mitral regurgitation (MR). The suggestion has been made to combine the left atrial filling volume (LA Fill) and PVF for estimating the mitral regurgitant volume, but echocardiographic PVF evaluation is known to have many limitations. The present case report includes an example of how to assess PVF using cardiovascular magnetic resonance, and a new method is proposed for quantification of the mitral regurgitant volume.
