Right Ventricle (RV) has been treated as the neglected cardiac chamber for a long time. Advent of cardiac MRI and advancements in echocardiography have facilitated the understanding of RV structure and function and elucidated its role in management and prognosis of various cardiac ailments. Further refinement of three-dimensional (3D) and strain imaging and their application to study of right ventricular structural and functional abnormalities will be helpful in early identification of cardiac pathologies and their timely intervention.
