Abstract

Pulmonary congestion is associated with poor prognosis following hospitalization for worsening heart failure (HF), although its quantification and optimal timing during HF hospitalization remains challenging. The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic value of radiographic pulmonary congestion at admission and discharge in patients with worsening HF.
