BACKGROUND The purposes of this study were to assess the usefulness of myocardial 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) for evaluating myocardial metabolic status in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and the therapeutic efficacy of alcohol septal ablation (ASA) in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy… CONTINUE READING
