OBJECTIVE To examine the hypothesis that speckle myocardial imaging (SMI) modalities, including longitudinal, radial and circumferential systolic (s) and diastolic (d) myocardial velocity imaging, displacement (D), strain rate (SR) and strain (S), as well as left ventricular (LV) rotation/torsion are sensitive for detecting early myocardial dysfunction in isolated LV non-compaction (iLVNC). DESIGN AND RESULTS Twenty patients with iLVNC diagnosed by cardiac magnetic resonance (15) or… CONTINUE READING
