Measuring mean pulmonary artery pressure by right-heart catheterization is the gold standard for pulmonary hypertension (PH) diagnosis. However, its invasiveness and complication leads to its limited use. The aim of this study was to determine whether echocardiography-derived pulmonary artery acceleration time (PAAT) possesses adequate diagnostic performance for PH, using right-heart catheterization as a reference standard.
