Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a complex disorder with significant heterogeneity in clinical characteristics and natural history. Traditionally, the diagnosis has been based on clinical assessment and echocardiography; however, persistent challenges in its noninvasive evaluation remain. Hence, improved diagnostic techniques could lead to better risk stratification of patients, which would potentially identify patients likely to benefit from effective therapies. Recent studies have demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
