BACKGROUND The myocardial longitudinal relaxation time (T1) on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) can quantify myocardial fibrosis in the presence or absence of visually detectable late gadolinium (Gd) enhancement (LGE). Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA) treatment produces beneficial remodeling in nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM). We assessed the hypothesis that interstitial myocardial fibrosis measured with the use of CMR predicts left ventricular (LV) beneficial… CONTINUE READING
