Diagnostic Role and Biomechanical Evaluation in Acute Mild and Moderate Elevation of Right Ventricular Afterload in Acute Pulmonary Embolism. Elucidate the diagnostic and biomechanical roles of left ventricular (LV) twisting and particularly, those of altered untwisting, to reduced right ventricular (RV) output during acute mild and moderate RV after load elevation.
