Evaluation of the left ventricular anatomy in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: comparison between echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

AIM The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between echocardiographic indexes of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy with LV mass (LVM) obtained at cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in a population of patients with hypertrophic cardiomiopathy (HCM). METHODS Thirty-nine patients with HCM underwent echocardiography and CMR. By echocardiography… CONTINUE READING
