Assessment of Left Ventricular Mass and Hypertrophy by Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Pediatric Hypertension.

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in adults is considered the gold standard for assessment of left ventricular mass (LVM) and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). The authors aimed to evaluate agreement of LVM measurements and LVH determination between echocardiography (ECHO) and CMR imaging in children with hypertension (HTN) confirmed by 24… CONTINUE READING
