The onset of sudden cardiac death and large inter- and intra-familial clinical variability of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy pose an important clinical challenge. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a high-resolution imaging modality that has become increasingly available in the past decade and has the unique possibility to demonstrate the presence of fibrosis or scar using late gadolinium enhancement imaging. As a result, the diagnostic and prognostic potential of cardiac magnetic resonance… CONTINUE READING
