Myocardial contraction fraction derived from cardiovascular magnetic resonance cine images-reference values and performance in patients with heart failure and left ventricular hypertrophy.


Aims Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) has strong prognostic implications and is associated with heart failure. Recently, myocardial contraction fraction (MCF) was identified as a useful marker for specifically identifying cardiac amyloidosis (CA). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of MCF for the discrimination of different… (More)
