ABSTRACT
The article discusses the cardiac magnetic resonance imaging's (CMR's) importance in determining the aetiology of left ventricular disease and cardiomyopathies. It states that CMR allows a complete, non-invasive analysis of cardiac function, morphology and tissue characterization within a 45-minute timeframe. In hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), CMR can differentiate physiological from pathological hypetrophy, while in restrictive cardiomyography (RCM), CMR can show typical biatrial dilation.
